FREQUENTLY THOUGHT QUESTIONS

by people who go through portfolios every day.

I have no time to go through all your work. What are your top three pieces of work?

Gift For Her – McKinsey Design
d-spot – Durex
Donate Your Data – Google Chrome


Do you actually have a big role in all the work displayed here or were you just a spectator in the group?

Are you one of those students who only wants to work on awards?

and make my parents think that my school tuition fee was worth it, I believe in work that works. 
So go ahead; send me that e-mailer brief for which you want copy
as soon as possible.


How well do you work in teams?

Not bad at all, thanks to my newly-developed skill
of suppressing my social awkwardness.

Swarna Thomas likes to write, think and occasionally, overthink. She spends most of her free time trying to teach people how to pronounce
her name right and planning unaffordable vacations in her head. 
She also likes to refer to herself in third-person sometimes.
