Harshal Desai …….. Designer & Entrepreneur

Mumbai, India


With just three years in the design and advertising industry, I am trying to invent my own life’s meaning by breaking established patterns and norms that aren’t helpful, and to respect harmonies that are. I am happiest when I’m exploring and trying out different forms of expression and am always on the search for ways to combine multiple mediums together.


I’ve donned many roles in life, beginning as a biomedical engineer to magazine writer to a multimedia designer & photographer, creative director, strategy manager, and finally stepping up as an entrepreneur to start a multidisciplinary design agency called BASE 501 (www.base501.com) along with my sister. At BASE 501, I manage defining and implementing business initiatives and company-wide design excellence.
