Our stories are never about us. The testimonials shared by our clients make our story. We take pride in sharing their success stories while we stand behind and applaud.
We believe in working in collaboration with our clients with utmost integrity and transparency forming a team where each can trust the other.
Design to me is like Mustard, the flavour that adds the zing. The Seasoning. The excitement of creating a product from abstract ideas or concepts brought to us by our clients and shaping them to communicate very definitive ideas through very fluid forms and components is what drives me. My motto is “Keep Smiling, It makes the world wonder what you’re up to.” It is because of this love for the out of the ordinary, the zing, that I got the name ‘The Mustard Maker’ by my coworkers. My work is to me, an extension of myself and I work every project to perfection.
Anjali Menrai-Mustard Maker
Being a Creative Director with 30 years’ experience under her belt, Anjali’s journey began with a BFA from Sophia Polytechnic, and a BA (Hons) Information Design, specialising in Electronic Media, from University of Sunderland, UK. Her advertising career started at Lintas Advertising, it took off when she moved on to Speer Communications, being put in charge of some of their important advertising campaigns as one of the youngest Art Directors. After studying away in UK, she returned to work at Tata Interactive as Head Designer, conceptualising and managing the execution of some of the prestigious digital projects for prominent national and international brands and services. In the course of her interaction with clients, Anjali became aware of the dire need for a niche personalised design studio, away from generalised ideas. There the seed of the idea that was Mustard was sown. Lean in terms of size, but large in it’s outlook, Mustard is a design house that thinks on its feet and delivers fast.
When not conceptualising new designs, Anjali writes children stories, paints, designs bags and is involved in philanthropic work.
