BIRYANI.GOLD brand identity design

Biryani gold is a start-up food chain business that serves Indian cuisine based in Kuwait. The company yearns to serve the best of pot biryani in the region along with a range of traditional Indian non-vegetarian dishes. The identity design started off with naming and the name biryani gold was finalized after several iterations. Through the design I have tried to express the richness of Indian spices reflecting the name of the brand with neat lines and font.

Bg Bg The initials BG kick-started the design with an exploration of the same with several fonts. Clean circles inspired from how the biryani would be served alongside small saucers which holds the side dishes, and experimentation with colours of spices were the driving strategies behind evolution of the design.

THE JOURNEY BLUEZ to GOLD A few of the initial design proposals. From Biryani Bluez to Biryani Gold, several proposals were made and perfected through thorough client discussions and brainstorming.

VISION CARE rebranding

With over 10 years of good will in more than 2 states in the country, Vision care a retail spectacles company required a rebranding. Re-designing the logo and designing a new logo for the company’s new e-commerce service were the task assigned. The client demanded a modern rework so that the company could be at par with contemporary trends.



The eye is carefully enclosed by the ‘C’ in ‘Care’ signifying the company’s trustworthy relationship with its clients. The blue tint gives an overall sense of safety and serenity to the design.

VISION EXPERT e-Commerce extension for VISION CARE The e-commerce service for vision care had to have a logo that reflected the parent company while being unique and contextual. The design is a combination of pictorial and verbal imagery of ‘Vision expert’ and had a similar nuance as that of the parent company.
