Creative Expression

I’m a calligrapher and enjoy exploring new styles, tools, and mediums. For me, it is not only beautiful handwriting, but it is an inspiration, meditation, dedication, and application. The thought and concept behind every stroke makes it amazing. My journey with calligraphy started with my father Achyut Palav. I’m privileged to be his son and to learn calligraphy from him. I grew up seeing him perform calligraphy and his skill, techniques, tools, and ease in which he performs has always mesmerized me.

Philosophy

I strongly believe that design will change the perspective of people and how they perceive the world.

Neiger "Rhymes With" Tiger

It’s important to own your individuality. No two tigers have the same stripe pattern and no two designs or strategies that come out of NeigerDesign are alike. Each project has its own goals, challenges, strategies, and solutions.
