The beauty of storytelling is that for a brief moment, all the clutter and chaos around you
disappears and all that remains is that moment of truth.

This page may address me by many titles – a designer, an advertising specialist, a marketer or
even an artist; but under every single name lies my one true love – the love for storytelling.

The Storyteller

The Designer

“After more than two decades of navigating through some of the most illustrious by-lanes in the advertising fraternity and
working with the who’s who of the industry, I’ve realised one thing; every dream can be designed

The Artist

“I think it’s time to come out of the closet. To be brave enough to share with the world
another side of me. So let the proud designer, presents to you a humble artist – Niyam Mayekar”

The Storyteller

My journey:
As a designer and creative lead in advertising, I was fortunate enough to work with some of the best advertising and design firms like Trikay Grey, Ogilvy India, Gia (part of Nexus Enterprise), Design Temple Pvt. Ltd. and also some landmark work for the Govt. that humbly got me the distinction of “Empanelment as graphic designer of Mumbai Metropolitan Region, Heritage Conservation Society”.

My thought Process:
Every idea needs an insight. Once you have a right starting point and you know who you are talking to, it’s all about creating a story that’s not just innovative but also solves the problem.

So what can I do for you?
Once we agree on the idea and the concept is finalized, the design and visual implementation is carried out as per the media plan and/or your requirement. Logo creation, Corporate Identity, Brand Identity, 360 Campaign Design, Websites, SEO, Brochures, Hospitality Designs (Hotel Corporate Identity, Menus, In-Toom Collaterals), Event and Exhibition Displays, Signage System, Social Media Designs and even art installation like murals and illustrations.

It gives me great pleasure to say a few words about Niyam Mayekar whom I have known so well. I find in Niyam a wonderful colleague when it comes to discuss the details of projects of communication.

He listened carefully to the details of my projects and presented clear and precise schemes for Press as well as digital communication. He has excellent grasp of the scope and possibilities and explores them fully. He is creative and chooses ideas which are contemporary and yet with appeal to fundamentals of the projects. We soon became friends and I enjoy communicating and sharing ideas for future.
Best wishes to you Niyam.

We engaged with Niyam’s design services for our website and marketing collateral. His designs were like a breath of fresh air. They were simple and easy to relate. It immediately clicked with our audience.

Niyam has a very structured approach to design thinking that allows him to explore concepts in-depth and bring to the fore designs that are not run-of-the-mill. One of the best guys in creative design I have worked with.

I have been associated with Niyam for the past decade and it is an absolute pleasure working with him. His structured approach and innovative way of thinking is what sets him apart from the rest.

The attention to detail and a constant urge to provide only the finest work is noteworthy. A designer so talented and yet so modest is hard to come by.

It was truly a holistically enriching experience to work with Niyam. He made it extremely easy to create an initial brief. His constant patience & poise through the communication process was a pleasure.

The sensitivity shown towards the brand, vision & background of the reason of the brand creation was so spot on. Needless to say, but timeline & other related communications were as professional as could be. Also, he advised on other related topics beyond his scope of services which was much appreciated. His network of related vendors made the overall process smooth across the board. Look forward to working again, together, on other creations.


Founder, Elsol Strategic Consultants

Niyam and his team are excellent. ESSC’s company logo, visiting cards and company literature have been carefully designed by the team. It symbolises sun in simple & clean design.

The orange circle can be adapted and used in so many brand variations.
