Baarish Date, Owner, Graphics Beyond
Born into a family of architects, His dad’s work on branding projects that he undertook while designing the interior environments of many restaurants (the Kamats logo was designed by him) influenced Baarish since his childhood and wanting to pursue architecture was a natural choice. By the time he finished at Kamala Raheja, the schools famed Director Sen Kapadia had opened up their minds to many other possibilities.. he had developed a keen interest in the graphic arts and considers himself lucky to study visual communication under Kirti Trivedi, Uday Athavankar, Ravi Poovaiah and other stalwarts in design pedagogy at IDC.
Baarish then worked with his mentor - Kirti Trivedi at BP Ergo for a while and then founded Graphics Beyond in 2002.
Today - GB is a 20 person design studio located in Goregaon, working on projects involving signage and wayfinding, branding and design of environments. The focus has always been to develop sensitive responses that are integrated into its context.
Relevant and tailor-made.
In Every project that involves an understanding of space, may it be signage or exhibition design - the architectural background comes in more than handy. That and the various encounters that Sen exposed them to - with experts from varied fields such as the performing arts, art history and social work…continues to influence and inform their works to date.
GB continues to work on projects ranging from memorials, malls and commercial complexes to residential townships, clubs and sports facilities… Along the way Baarish also pursued long distance sea swimming and water polo, and is a big fan of Japan.
