The metamorphosis commenced from the time I came back from Europe in June 2009. From the last one year I have been feeling the need to push the boundaries of creativity and design. I have launched ranges and papers that I only dreamt off. My meeting with Milou Ket in The Netherlands was the turning point where I realised that my work was more design oriented than mass produced. This has eventually helped me grow into a confident designer capable of creating globally recognised objects of art.
Anand’z Creation started from a one room apartment in the year 2000. I was a young college boy trying to impress friends with handmade bookmarks and cards. The idea to do something different struck me here and henceforth I named my work, venture, passion and business “Anand’z Creation”. My rebellious nature and out-of-the-box thinking put in the “z”. I was self-taught and had no formal training in craft other than what I learnt at Wynberg Allen School. I had no limitations or boundaries therefore I experimented with lots of new ideas and concepts. I learnt symmetry and measurement while I drew and cut every envelope by hand – today we handcraft ten thousand a month.
In the last ten years I have met a lot of people, travelled extensively, worked with small and the big, created an extensive supplier network across the country and received feedback from hundreds of satisfied customers. This is a never ending learning process. Sometimes a small idea or event has grown into a huge range of products.
This field never fails to amaze me of its potential. I wish i had 36 hours in a day…..I would do so much more.
