Interview with Lollypop Design Studio

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I have always been an artist by heart and designer by choice. In my early childhood days, the only thing I was ever good at was drawing and I chose to pursue it as my career. I tried many fields of design but got glued to digital design when I was first introduced to it in early 2000. Post my Masters in visual communication & arts, I began my professional journey of digital design. And in the year 2013, I returned to silicon valley of India with a vision to put India as a design destination on the world map and founded Lollypop - a dedicated UX UI Design studio.
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
Lollypop is a team of creative and professional heads bound by a common interest of crafting sweet experiences for simplifying everyday lives. It is an innovation hub where expressions & thoughts are strategically woven around usability & creativity. Our culture embodies responsibility and gratification by outdoing ourselves each time.
What is "design" for you?
Design for me is 'Solution'. It is a purposeful route that one takes to strive for a best possible solution.
What kinds of works do you like designing most?
There is no work that I can pin-point at. But, something we really enjoy doing is finding a solution to a challenge; designs that demands extensive research and provides us with a chance to reimagine a field is extremely intriguing.
What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
I am always at peace while designing. It is like my muse and my very own kingdom.
What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
Ecstatic! Every single time, I see a design taking a shape, it feels like a stepping stone that provides us with a chance to improvise and learn more.
From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
There can be various ways of catering to society. But I suppose for me it is how we can touch everyday lives and make things simpler and more usable for everyone.
How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
Design has evolved by leaps and bounds. In India it is still at nascent stage but is among the highest booming sector and this will become the most sought after service as it truly puts users into the fore-front.
Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
I get inspired from everything, everyday, I meet someone new and have an opportunity to learn something, to look at a bigger picture. Reading is the fuel to my creativity and few sources of my inspirations are Ustwo studio, smashing magazine, medium articles.
Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
I belong to the silicon valley of India, Bangalore. Every country is distinctive and designs are always driven by cultural and peoples perspective; so yes, culture definitely affects design. Pros are its vividity and colors and variations that India has to offer. And, cons would be unwillingness to spend time on research, everyone is in a hurry and expects a very quick turn-around time.
How do you work with companies?
We believe in communicating and not selling. So, we just put forth our work and have a design workshop with every company; this helps us understand their requirement and also clarify what design can achieve. Once, this is done we proceed with formalities.
What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
I suppose it is not only about skills but attitude. We believe we can train skills but right kind of attitude is extremely important.

What were the obstacles you faced before becoming a design master?
In India art was not very respected profession back then and I had to take up lot of small odd jobs to fund my career. None I know, supported my decision to be a designer, but, irrespective of all the adversities I continued to pursue my dream and passion.
How do you think designers should present their work?
Designers work should speak for itself. It should be like a story which unfolds at each step and sets a rhythm and tone in the hearts and minds of viewers.
What’s your next design project, what should we expect from you in future?
Me and my team are working on many exciting projects from robotics to VR, let’s wait and unfold the new possibilities.
What people expect from an esteemed designer such as yourself?
Expectation is a funny word, people expect a lot but it is important to converse and set the expectations at the very beginning. Being honest with what problems can be solved through design helps everyone.

Design is like breathing but with awareness. With better designs, we have a better future that is systematic, planned and touching lives every day.

Can’t disclose the names but it’s to do with VR and robotics.

Design field is going to be working at the grassroot level and would be embedded in business strategies from the conceptualisation phase itself.

This is very subjective, it differs for each project and clients.
When you have a new design project, where do you start?
We begin with the founders as it is very important to understand the vision and business before kicking off with anything.
Do you think design sets the trends or trends set the designs?
This is the question like what comes before egg or the chicken! There are times when we follow trends and then there at times we go against the current to set a new trend.
What is the role of technology when you design?
Design & technology is like soul and body, none can thrive without another. Technology enables the realisation of design and design makes technology more meaningful.
What kind of design software and equipment do you use in your work?
We use Sketch for wireframes and adobe suite tools for UI design.
What is the role of the color, materials and ambient in design?
They set the language and personality of any brand. You need to be extremely aware of the vision of the founder and purpose of the product so that you can slowly translate them into design language through use of color, materials and ambient.
What do you wish people to ask about your design?
I hope, instead of a question, it is more of a reinforcement; when people come across a truly awesome interface they say that it must be by ‘Lollypop’
When you see a new great design or product what comes into your mind?
I would love to meet the designer and design team behind this product.
Who is your ideal design partner? Do you believe in co-design?
My entire team is my ideal design partner. Everyone comes with a unique set of skills and you should just learn to see that and instil people’s skill in yourself.

I am truly inspired by USTWO designs and its monument valley; they inspired me in setting up my own design studio.
Which books you read had the most effect on your design?
There are many. But, I love to read about human psychology and smashing magazine articles.

I believe in learning the trade and not the secrets of trade; that’s why I have climbed up the ladder one step at a time, starting from being a graphic designer to creative director and now a design entrepreneur.
How do you feel about all the awards and recognition you had, is it hard to be famous?
Good work speaks for itself and when you have a design team like mine, it is not that hard.

I guess the funniest one would be my in-flight conversation where my co-passenger who almost bullied me in designing the entire website during the journey itself; I felt like jumping off the plane!

Walking into the design studio and seeing the faces of my entire team energizes every atom of my body.

Yeah, I guess. Early signs from god, I would flunk in my subjects but always sketch beautiful.
What do you think about future; what do you see will happen in thousand years from now?
