I’m passionate about design. Good design. Design that makes you think. Design that connects. Design that evokes an emotional response. I love to push boundaries and think outside the box. I love to create. To innovate. I love experimenting with new materials, ideas and processes, always striving to find new ways of approaching a problem, finding new solutions. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t, but I am satisfied for having tried. I accept my failures as a part of the process, learn from them and move on. But when I am done, I would have created something that’s original and fresh. Design to me is like a journey, a process, and an evolution of form and ideas.

My process driven approach to design and ability to conceptualize as an artist is what sets me apart from other designers.

Reach out to me to get your business off to a flying start!

I worked with Malini on a website refresh for Open School. She spent the right amount of time getting clear on our needs and mapping out our site map, before diving right in. Because she did thorough set-up work, the actual website build was really quick. She was responsive to changing priorities and was flexible when our schedule for launch had to change. Our website is beautiful – simple, responsive, and intuitive. Aside from that, Malini was just a pleasure to work with. She is kind, funny, and super patient!

“Ms Gupta is an art director beyond her years. I like her understanding of typography and her ability to convey a magazine feature’s tone through its display type treatment. She’s also is great with color. She often dreamed up unconventional color combinations and knows when to use color sparingly. In a creative world in which too many art school grads are more Photoshop Boys (and girls), it is a joy to have worked with someone like Ms. Gupta.”

Ochre {art + design} is simply amazing. Malini masterfully blends beautiful, elegant design with superb form and function. Every aspect of the site is designed with meticulous detail. Her websites are not remastered templates, but works of art. Malini is my go-to designer. I appreciate her personalized attention, responsive support. I wish there were an option for a sixth star because Ochre deserves it.
