Dhanashri Ubhayakar

Hi, I am Dhanashri, now a freelance graphic designer... Started my career in Advertising, at Ogilvy creating lovely communication for orange, hutch, vodafone with the best of creative people from the advertising industry. This soon got me into the 'Advertising Lifestyle' of working late nights and always being busy.. I gained valuable experience and even won the prestigious GOLD pencil at the One Show Design Award (that recognizes talent around the world...) while i spent 5 years at Ogilvy and 2 years at Mudra.

But after my daughter Vanshikaa was born, I couldn't imagine myself returning to my hectic advertising job. So i decided to work as a freelancer, learn new things and do everything that i aspired to do..... And since then very seldom do I get bored or tired of working - there's always something new to do, or I find some new way to apply what I know, or I am necessitated to learn something new to make the project successful and more importantly am happy because even after doing all this i can give time to my family.

My journey with FunOKPlease

Preeti's positivity is soooo contagious that after meeting her for the first time itself, i knew right then that i surely wanted to work with her.... so when i was approached by her to illustrate and design an activity book for kids.... i jumped at the opportunity, went all out and designed every page in a different unique style, making it an attractive activity book that a child can keep going back to... when ever he/she needs an idea to surprise their family, friends or even themselves as all the activities in the book are ideas that can lead to innovative applications and opens up the kids mind to doing something unusual.

We just had 2 months to create this 100 pages book..... "ya just 60 days to think, try, design and print 100 pages.... and here we are with our book Make.Do.Be. all set to launch, reach millions of kids and also make a difference in the life of the kids at Angelxpress.

I would love to thank Preeti, Sonali and Shikha, am looking forward to working on many more projects and having a good time with them for life.

Suhita Mitra

Suhita's early years in pristine Nagaland, schooling years in culturally rich Kolkata, higher education in colourful Gujarat and the current years in restless Mumbai has given her a wide range of experiences to draw upon and reflect them back in ways she can express best. A graduate of NID, Ahmedabad, with a short stint in animation and a love for drawing and reading, illustrating ideas became her favourite mode of expression.

Even though it's quite laborious, working for the bright kids of's more of an indulgence and opportunity to give back what she has bountifully received as a kid herself.

With this as her backdrop, creating scenes for the 366 words in Mumbai was a very challenging yet fun filled opportunity. It's overwhelming to think of capturing the Mumbai spirit, so she let Mumbai, the city be her guide and mentor along with the able and steady guidance of Preeti Vyas and Mirabelle Dacunha, both passionate Mumbaiites themselves. Capturing each scene- from carefree Juhu beach to the very business like world of Bombay Stock Exchange and many scenes in between has been a very intense and rewarding journey from start to finish. And a wonderful opportunity to give back to the city with it's limitless capacity and backdrop to millions of stories, dramas, dreams, hopes and lives!
