Arati was responsible for the design of the White & MacLean Publishing logos for the books and the website – she clearly knows her stuff and the result is a superb graphic that is powerful, modern yet timeless. She has also done the cover design for our new fiction book – Shadows by Alex Hunter – and we’ll be happily using her for the internal design and setting as well. As far as we are concerned, Arati is a real find and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone wanting superb, timely and very professional graphic work.

Alasdair White, White & MacLean Publishing, www.whiteandmaclean.euFirst worked with Arati in 2009 and continues the partnership.
Arati is an excellent designer, and works very diligently at the projects she is involved in. She has a good temperament, and works well with people. She has designed the catalogue and publicity matter for my exhibition Painted Sceneries and The Delhi Ibsen Festival 2008 [in collaboration with the Royal Norwegian Embassy], for which she has conceptualised the basic design.

Nissar Allana, The Dramatic Art and Design AcademyWorked with Arati in 2007, 2008, 2009.
A thorough professional, Arati gave a whole new meaning to the design aspect of Cyber Media during her short stint here. Full of innovative ideas and zest, her thought provoking comments and suggestions did add a new dimension to some of the projects we were doing at that time. Her planning methodology and systematic approach to everything at hand made sure projects were delivered on schedule, always. Of special note was a long project we did for Encyclopedia Britannica: the project would have been a mess if Arati had not joined the team when she did – and what a success it turned out to be. I’ve always been wary of working with freelancers but working with Arati was a whole new experience. I’ve worked with her on a number of projects and if she commits to doing something, she WILL do it, come what may. She’s so professional in her approach – it is no surprise that her services are much in demand. Her creative inputs have given some of our projects/books a fresh look and feel. I have had a great experience with every project that we assigned her to work on. One of the recent projects we did with her involved designing a book of 256 pages in 6 weeks. Although we took Arati on to work on the design, she helped in many other ways to speed up the process, often working through the night. Not only was the project delivered on time, it was well appreciated by our client overseas. Top qualities:Great Results, Personable, On Time
Vatsala Arora, Manager – Content Creation, CyberMedia India LtdManaged Arati indirectly as a full-time Graphic Designer at CyberMedia Services (2006-2007) and thereafter hired Arati as a Freelance Graphic Designer in 2007, 2008.
Working with Arati is a true pleasure. An innovative designer and a thorough professional, Arati is the person you can depend on at all times. Her meticulous planning is admirable and she takes organization to a different level altogether. I remember working with her on a particularly difficult project – Encyclopedia of India for Encyclopedia Britannica. She impressed all (including the client) with her creative abilities, timely deliveries and anticipation of the client’s requirements. Her untiring work in creating a portfolio at the nth hour for the London Book fair is a classic example of the kind of dedication Arati brings to all her work. Placed in a sticky situation, I would go all out to have Arati on my side.
Madhumita Bardhan Sinha, Head Editorial Services, Cyber Media (India) LtdManaged Arati indirectly as a full-time Graphic Designer at CyberMedia Services (2006-2007)
Arati worked with me only for a couple of months. What struck me about her was the quality of her work. I can’t remember an instance where we would need Arati to rework on anything she had submitted. Or remind her about deadlines, as she would always deliver what was required on or before time. Arati is quality conscious and resourceful professional.
Hoshie Ghaswalla, President of CyberMedia Services & Publishing, CyberMedia India LtdManaged Arati indirectly as a full-time Graphic Designer at CyberMedia Services (2006-2007)
Arati is one of the few people I have come across who have the rare mix of qualities that includes professional skill, good attitude and a high degree of personal integrity. I was lucky to have her on my team. Our clients at Encyclopedia Britannica, both in India as well as Chicago, were also particularly appreciative of her contribution on a very challenging project.

We asked Arati to design the Command Coffee Table Book Surya and right from the beginning, her professional knowledge and creativity, which easily surpassed the standards available to us for similar work, were evident. Even our publisher, a firm of repute, was all praise for the design and ‘feel’ of the book. Her commitment to perfection, punctuality and work ethics was outstanding.
