Lead Design Manager, Environment Design
Gerry, as he is fondly known, is an alumnus of Rachana Sansad, Bombay, with over 25 years of experience in design and other creative leanings. He has worked on prestigious projects for the Sultanate of Oman during his stint in the middle-east and as an independent design consultant before aligning with Elephant.
At Elephant, Gerry leads a bubbly squad of environment designers who excel in creating & delivering exceptional Brand & Retail experiences. Noteworthy assignments include a complete spatial & retail makeover for Axis Bank’s Regular, Flagship & Rural branches, Retail strategy & rollout programs for Titan Eye Plus, CEAT Tyres, Venkys XPRS and more recently – Jawa Motorcycle stores that bagged 2 coveted awards. Brand experience projects led by him include the corporate HQ for Praj Industries, Suzlon One Earth Campus, Dr. Reddy’s Campus and EON IT Park, to name a few. He was an esteemed member of the jury panel - Afaqs Foxglove Awards 2019.
Gerry believes design is much like an adventure trip. A designer needs to plan but embrace the unexpected, explore but tread the road less travelled, listen with purpose & empathy, go the extra mile but unpack the undesirable and then… sit back and enjoy the view.
When he is not biking into the hills on a weekend, you’ll find him performing at a Jazz or fusion gig or delivering a session on creative music to a wild bunch of students.
