I always initiate my work by sketching on paper. But an inspiration for a design starts while I am listening and observing my clients.

Apart from this, I have a repository of designs that I develop based on my observations from the nature and the surroundings.
Designing can sometimes be a really time consuming task, how do you manage your time?
Other than being time consuming, it also requires one to be in the correct frame of mind that allows uninterrupted creativity. I try to gain inspiration from all aspects of life to ensure that I am in a state of calm to let my creative juices flow. My family has been of great support to give me this space.

I usually take a couple of weeks to finalize one design. This includes multiple iteration with the customer to listen to their needs and desires and taking feedback on the drafts.
