Take a tour of Shalini's New Jersey home, in an interview on The EastCoast Desi blog site
"From our first phone call, I felt confident in the work Shalini would create for NYC Medics. I came into the project with little information for her and just had a brief description of what we would need. She was able to work with our website, social media profiles, and an annual report to create amazing visuals that we felt were a perfect representation of our brand. Not only was the work she created great, she was also extremely timely with all emails and phone calls and our project was completed within the estimated project timeline on Catchafire. I would recommend her for any organization that is looking for timely and professional
creative work!"

Shalini’s graphics aptitude and innate understanding of three dimensional objects in space make her a valuable design team member. Shalini's background and degrees in fine art, graphic design, and architectural allow her to truth out 3D objects and information graphics  [worked with her on TVM (Ticket Vending Machines) and other large civic ID signage in SketchUp and AutoCad] which are a boon to any client.  Shalini’s keen sense of humor, and singing voice make for a pleasant office mate especially when rapid fire deadlines are the norm. I appreciate the creativity Shalini brings to the table and always welcome the opportunity to collaborate with her.

When I first met Shalini in 2003, her multi-disciplined background in architecture and communications design intrigued me and I invited her to join our team. The skills she brought to our corporate communications assignments are an asset to anyone who collaborates with her. Shalini is curious, knows how to ask the right questions to define communications problems and brings a wealth of creative ideas and analytical skills to hone her designs into effective solutions – and always with a high level of energy, and pride in her work.

I recently worked with Shalini Prasad of DeSha Creative Graphic Designs.  I was referred to Shalini by a friend who had benefited from her experience and talent. My experience was equally impressive; Shalini was incredibly insightful and patiently walked me through the entire creative process. I was extremely satisfied with the final design along with her collaborative style. The result was a unique and dynamic logo design for my consulting company. I highly recommend working with Shalini!

Working with Shalini on my corporate identity was a pleasure. She provided some initial ideas that needed very little in refinement. We agreed on a bold but tasteful design that I receive positive complements on regularly.  I’ve used other graphic designers in the past - some of them get what I need but it takes some time to get there and I’m never certain that I am 100% satisfied with the end result. Shalini's professionalism combined with her one-of-a-kind creativity is not expensive, it’s priceless.

Shalini designed our business cards and brochures. She has a talent for design and color, turned around our old fashioned cards into new vibrant ones. She was also conscious of our budget. She patiently , meticulously and diligently worked with us while we were toying with ideas to add our multiple locations and doctors. She even helped us edit our copy and content for the brochures. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need for a stylish and attractive design.

Shalini was recommended by one of her clients for our catalog and brochures. Shalini was very prompt, detail-oriented and open-minded. She was easily accessible during the process of completing our catalog and brochures. She had many design concepts to choose from. She learned the nature of our manufacturing quickly in order to successfully complete the brochures. I would recommend Shalini for anyone considering to use her services.

Having seen Shalini's design work in my area, I jumped at the opportunity to work with her on the logo for our non-profit. In addition to considering my ideas, Shalini put great thought into bringing our mission to life in our logo. Shalini gave me a few concepts to consider, and they were all so good that I had a hard time choosing among them. When the project completed, our followers were so impressed with the result. Our new branding was integral in transforming our mission from a local one to a national one. We were featured in a nationally-distributed magazine and I started getting emails asking who did our logo! I am so proud to be able to tell others I worked with Shalini on our project!

As the director of account services at a NJ based ad agency/marketing firm, Shalini and I worked together on a variety of integrated campaigns, logos and taglines for a wide range of clients. Her extensive art and architecture background allows her to bring a unique and fresh design perspective to any assignment. Plus, she's so much fun to work with!
