Hello! My name is Sarwan.
I am a 23 year old graphic artist, living in the Republic of Mauritius. I am a former student of the Royal College Port Louis and also a recent graduate from the University of Mauritius (UoM) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Applications.
I have been designing Prints like magazines, posters, corporate identity and so on for various organizations or persons since I left High School, and started with RGB graphics and multimedia during my time at the university. For the needs of my final year project, I’ve done extensive research work on User Interface design, the project area being Human Computer Interaction.
Though I have a penchant for graphic arts, I’ve also got the skills of a web and software developer, complemented with a touch of networking. My favourite tools of the trade has been Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Indesign and Adobe Dreamweaver, for quite a few years now. I also have great admiration for some open-source alternatives like GIMP or Inkscape which I use occasionally.
I abide by these commandments for designers:
- -Thou shalt not imitate.
- -Thou shalt not cater.
- -Thou shalt not seek effectiveness for its own sake.
- -Thou shalt not employ expedients.
- -Thou shalt not exploit thyself nor suffer thyself to be exploited by others.
- -Thou shalt not concern thyself with the opinions of any but the sensitive and the informed.
- -Thou shalt not give to anyone the thing that he wants, unless for thyself the thing that he wants is right.
- -Thou shalt not compromise with popular taste nor fashion nor with machinery nor with the desire of gain.
- -Thou shalt not be satisfied.
I’ve showcased only a few of my artworks on this site.
That’s a little bit about myself. Hope you enjoy my artworks!
