First thing in the morn­ing...

The nice thing about be­ing a de­signer is that I don’t work; for me it’s just play. That means I don’t have a typ­i­cal day. In the morn­ing I get up with­out an alarm clock - sit up and spend a few min­utes pon­der­ing on how the day will pan out.

Field­ing calls from po­ten­tial clients con­cern­ing de­sign projects...

With clients around the globe, from New York to Shen­zhen and from Tokyo to Mi­lan, I travel a lot to meet in­ter­est­ing peo­ple. I talk to clients and the com­pa­nies I do the art di­rec­tion for. Af­ter I dis­cuss with clients, I hud­dle with my team and there are long dis­cus­sions about run­ning projects.

Try­ing to fit ev­ery­thing in your small bag...

Not so easy. How­ever, I try and sort out work on pri­or­ity ba­sis.

Tak­ing a mo­ment for your cof­fee break...

For me a small break is a re­fresh­ing mo­ment. It helps in re­ju­ve­nat­ing the mind.

Co­or­di­nat­ing pickup and de­liv­ery from whole­salers and de­sign show­rooms...

Touch­wood, my ef­fi­cient team takes care of all co­or­di­na­tions. I get too much en­grossed with work.

Sleep...

At night, when I do not get dis­turbed by my con­stantly ring­ing phone, I de­sign at my kitchen ta­ble, be­fore I go to bed.
