A LITTLE INTRO
Hi there and thanks for visiting Vijay's Designs.
In case you're wondering, I am not a professional graphic designer by any means. I'm clueless about Photoshop or any of those other design heavyweights like GIMP and the like. But designing images and graphics is something that interests me mainly as a hobby. I'm fascinated by design, especially websites and visuals in online and printed media. I'm also a big fan of animated GIFs and art generally.
In addition to amateur graphic design, I'm very good at drawing (but absolutely useless at painting!). Still learning though.
I live in London, grew up around here and I do love this city a lot, warts and all. My day job is as a database administrator for a multinational in the events sector and I'm also a blogger and a part-time writer/creative consultant. I studied journalism and media at a leading London university, so I'm gifted with the written word too. I come from a creative family with lots of different artistic interests.
This website is an attempt to bring together under one roof all of my different examples of creativity in the various roles of my life, and as something I can show to friends, family and perhaps, potential clients for future (basic) design work.
