Hi! This is Mandar Apte from Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

I am a designer by profession. My core competencies are UX (User Experience Design), UI (User Interface Design), Graphic Design, Logo and Symbol Design, Branding and Identity, and 2D Animation Film Design.

I studied BFA – Applied Art from Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art. In addition, I specialized in illustration as an elective subject for my BFA Graduation Degree.

Then I pursued a CDAC ACTS course called DACA (Diploma in Advanced Computing Arts). I was introduced to Autodesk 3DS Max, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and CorelDRAW there. It was a pleasure ride in-field design software, which simplified my thought process of working with Computers (Mac / PC) and Software.

Professional Experience and More Education
By learning all that, I got a good job opportunity to work as a graphic designer at TechMahindra and then as a web designer at IIT Bombay. You can read about my professional expertise on my Linkedin Profile.

While working at IITB, I also pursued a ‘2D Classical Animation Film Making’ class at Shardashram Vidyamandir’s School of Animation at Dadar under the guidance of animation guru V. G. Samant. I know this experience will help me in my life and the years to come.

After the IITB job, I choose to do freelancing for four years in the design field. I also pursued my interest in learning computer programming languages like C, Objective-C, C++, and Swift in that period. My decision to learn programming languages was developed because of a massive shift in how developers and designers will distribute apps using the iPhone App Store introduced by Apple. And today, because of that decision, I have developed three apps for Apple iPhone, iPad, and Mac to help users learn Devanagari Script and Indic languages like Marathi, Sanskrit, and Hindi. You can look at my Apple Developer Profile to learn more about my apps.
