My professional journey thus far...


As a seasoned Creative Director, I have had the privilege of exploring and evolving in various domains of the industry. From a young age, I knew that design was my calling, and my journey has been nothing short of exhilarating.

Starting my career as a graphic design instructor, I gained invaluable experience in imparting design education and honing my teaching skills. This helped me inculcate a strong foundation of design principles and techniques, which I later applied in my professional work.

Subsequently, I ventured into the publishing industry, where I worked on designing layouts for books, magazines, and other print media. This experience not only refined my aesthetic sense but also taught me how to work under strict deadlines and deliver high-quality designs consistently.

My foray into eLearning design opened up a whole new world of opportunities for me. As I designed instructional materials and learning modules, I became proficient in creating engaging, interactive, and effective visual aids for online education.

Currently, I am working in marketing design, where I create designs that speak to target audiences and help drive business growth. This experience has honed my ability to create design strategies that align with marketing goals, and has also helped me develop an acute understanding of brand identity and consumer behaviour.

Throughout my journey, I have remained committed to staying up-to-date with the latest design trends and technologies. I continually strive to improve my craft and deliver designs that are not only visually appealing but also align with the needs and objectives of my clients.

Overall, my career graph is a testament to my passion for design and my unwavering commitment to professionalism.

I highly recommend Big Step Creative, and I can't wait to work with them again!"

Joanne Markow
Chief Operating Officer, Six Red Marbles

"Anuj is a truly wonderful colleague and team player. He was instrumental in creating our offshore creative team at Six Red Marbles. Anuj lead the team and developed strong understanding and seamless integration with our US Team and in service and outstanding creative support for major publisher, custom content, K-12 and Higher Ed companies and organizations. He lead creative projects across multiple disciplines, technologies and provided insightful leadership to our entire content and learning experience design team and methodologies. Anuj was very adept at leading and working with high level customers to ascertain their creative needs and delight them with his integrated approach with outstanding customer service, project management, joint prototyping brainstorming and feedback sessions and the like. Anuj delivered on time, on budget even when work was required above and beyond the call. He was very skilled at working with cross functional teams from content, design, tech, vendors and other providers and doing so on a multi-national cross cultural and geo-dispersed virtual team basis.

He has my highest recommendation for any role in the creative design, project management and cross functional team environments."

Bob Fogel
Chief Executive Officer, Six Red Marbles

"Anuj is one of the most strategic creatives I've collaborated with in my career. Instead of simply taking a project at face value, Anuj always ensures what I'm requesting is actually going to solve a problem or spur desired action. He is also efficient with his work and timely with his updates."

Derek Hernandez

Director of Brand & Content, Mentor Collective

"Anuj is a leader people want to follow. He cares about the company culture, about his colleagues, and his employees. He leads by example with tremendous work ethic and team spirit. He supports and mentors his employees, and helps them achieve the best they can be. It goes without saying that Anuj is a very talented creative. Just as important, Anuj understands how to interpret clients' direction and feedback -- even when not clear -- how to communicate the direction in a way that is both understandable and actionable, and how to take the direction beyond what the clients express to a result that delights them."

Michael McCay
Chief Financial Officer, Six Red Marbles

"Anuj is an exceptional creative and collaborative partner. In my role as Content Marketing Manager, I'm constantly in a state of planning and creation. Having Anuj as an extension of our team, has allowed us to work efficiently and get campaigns launched on time. He takes the time to understand a brand's aesthetic and voice and carefully translates that into compelling visuals that enhance our storytelling.

We recently asked Anuj to take on some of our Hubspot web development for our virtual event stream, and his redesign of our landing pages for legibility and ease has contributed to increases in registrations.

He excels at both custom creative and design production and, importantly, knows when to take creative liberties on projects to enhance them within brand guidelines. It's also been great to see how effortlessly he adapts to various design platforms. Any company would be lucky to have his talent uplift their content."
