He is redefining the industry by using creativity with design and technology to find human solutions for the biggest brands, because what’s good for people is good for brands. His body of work reflects his vision for creativity. His work for Whisper Touch the Pickle was one of the first social movement to break the taboo around periods around the sub-continent. Recently his work for P&G Whisper – Missing Chapter won him a Grand Prix in Sustainable Development Goals at Cannes Lions 2022 – an award which is very close to his heart as it makes a real difference by getting a chapter on Periods in School books and by breaking period taboos and helping 23 million girls stay in school.
