“4 friends that had a dream to make something special of their lives and are today blessed and fortunate to be doing it.”
That, in short, is how Praveenn Bhandarry, Dattatray Kkadam, Nitin Gosavi and Ashwin Borade sum up their professional journey so far.
4 alumni from the prestigious JJ School of Arts Campus, they today, run the up and growing brand consultancy and design studio called Orrigem.
Back in 2002, fresh out of college, the 4 friends had no idea that their paths would cross and they would collaborate in such a fruitful and meaningful way.
Each pursued their own interests from printing, to advertising, to design and software!
Over the years, they stayed in touch socially and even collaborated on projects. Their years of friendship, familiarity of working styles and deep respect for each other’s capabilities, finally prompted them to decide to come together and offer clients the benefit of their combined skill-sets.
Hence, Orrigem was born.
Over the years, Orrigem has grown, increasing their offerings to clients. Today, they have the full spectrum of services from branding to design to production and post-production.
The 4 friends however, have taken their growth-story in their stride. They continue to remain true to their core beliefs of humility, integrity and passion for what they do.
And of course, continue to keep building on their very special friendship.
