My interview on Republica Daily, Nepal about "Graphic Design as Career in Nepal"

Sketch your career  


Another such profession in need of eye for minute details and creativity is graphic designing. Ananda Maharjan, a graphic designer, has designed many film posters in the last couple of years. He started designing the posters for films first when he won poster design competition for the film ‘Chhadke.’ Since then, he claims that he’s been very busy with the job. He also designed posters for films like ‘Manjari’, ‘Saanghuro’, ‘Nepathya’ and is working on upcoming films like ‘Jholey’, ‘Raghav’, ‘Tulke’, ‘Aawaran’ and ‘Junge’.

He says that his work has a lot of scope, but comes with its own baggage. “There is only one graphic designing college in Nepal, Wigan & Leigh College Nepal, and it is very expensive. Hence, self learning and practice is a must.” Although hard work and effort is always rewarded, he says that it’s the person’s ability to cope up with the challenges that he finds very helpful.

“Different clients want different things; they have their own project and ideas that we designers have to accommodate. The design trend is changing; now we have clean flat design trends worldwide, but the same design trend won’t work in our context. Designers should keep updates about the latest graphic tools. In Nepal, designers are still using outdated software, they resist change.

“On top of that, the load shedding starts a different story of struggle. We have to be careful about people using our designs without giving any credits, too,” he concurs. On a positive note, he adds that designing has a lot of scope in publishing houses, advertising, web designs, film industry, online outsourcing, freelancing, etc.
