Mentorship

I've mentored a lot of young designers and aspiring students who have ended up getting jobs and internships at great companies in just 2-3 months after creating their portfolio.

PRODUCT DESIGN INTERN AT DUNZO

I had the rare opportunity to learn under the mentorship of Chethan. At the start of my career, his guidance has added a lot of value.  He is someone who forces you to think, someone who chooses discussion over decision, someone who is not only my guide to designing but helped me in shaping my thought process as well. I was always amazed by how detailed and constructive his feedbacks were. We had multiple rounds of feedback sessions which helped me build a great portfolio and bag my first design internship at Dunzo within a few weeks of completing my project.

I really appreciate his presence as a mentor, helping me realise my potential and guiding me. I would highly recommend him to any fellow designers seeking mentorship and guidance.

Chethan is the absolute best when it comes to mentoring young designers and I was lucky enough to be guided by him. The way he breaks down the problem, diving deep into the actual user needs was very pivotal in shaping the mindset that I worked on a project. Being guided by him, I could see the difference between a good design and a better design, because sometimes things seem to work but can be optimized for a better experience. His guidance helped me to collate a good enough portfolio, which in turn helped me bag my first full-time design gig at Zomato.

Couldn't have asked for a better mentor and would highly recommend him to fellow young designers seeking guidance 💪🏼.

It's not every day when you come across standout talent like Chethan. I had the opportunity to be mentored by Chethan at the start of my career. He is an incredibly talented designer. His feedbacks and encouragement helped me navigate my way in the design journey, and eventually land my first job!

Chethan's ability to juggle multiple projects is unlike what I've seen before. Through his channels such as Youtube and Medium, he put out well researched and informative content that has helped designers tremendously. Chethan would be an asset to any team.

PRODUCT DESIGNER AT OLA
Work in progress
I have spent the first few months this year learning Product Design under the mentorship of Chethan, and I was left awestruck each day with his skills, design intelligence, and understanding beyond tools and screens. He has not only taught me about design but also about the right mindset and the perspective to look at the world, to make my design work. I truly appreciate the efforts and time he has lent me over these months to turn me into a valuable human and a better designer, who has recently bagged her first design job at Ola. I wouldn't have been able to do this without his guidance.

Thanks a lot for being the absolute best mentor I could have ever found, Chethan. More power to you. Cheers! ✨
