Designer Girinath Gopinath is an alumnus of the prestigious NIFT, Delhi. Whilst in college he got great appreciation and feedback for doodles that he would scribble on his trousers. He soon realised that he could continue to scribble like a kid and yet generate new concepts and designs.
Girinath has been designing fashion accessories for over 7 years now, while still keeping his passion for doodling alive on his blog. Last year he was featured as one of 6 leading artists of India by the Goethe Institute and one of his posters was short-listed at designboom’s Tivoli Audio 10th anniversary design challenge.
Girinath is also drawn towards craft and was recently part of a workshop organised for the revival of Indian craft, by the World Craft Council in association with GJEPC.
Here are a few of his dynamic doodles:
Girinath currently teaches accessory design at the National Institute of Fashion Technology.
