The Founder / Artist / Designer
Pushkar Thakur is a New Delhi based multihyphenate design and art professional, and entrepreneur. In 2005 he set up the multi-award winning studio of design and art, The Grafiosi.
As Creative Director and Founder of The Grafiosi, he has won awards from the Association for Retail Environments, American Design Awards, Creativity International Awards, Design And Design and received an Honourable Mention from Harvard Law School. And has been featured in design books, documentaries and journals from Argentina, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Spain, UK and USA.
His digital art moves from the abstract and fantastical to the figurative and fun; while his installations are more sculptural and interactive, and use a variety of media from analogue to digital. Through street and travel photography he explores the plurality of locations and identities. Illustrations and poster art also form part of his artistic vocabulary.
His art has been exhibited in Frankfurt, Istanbul, Kolkata, Mumbai, New York and New Delhi.
In 2021 he started an Interior Design studio, Figmentus, which reimagines spaces through a thematic design language.
The Grafiosi is a New Delhi based studio of art and design, specializing in identity creation and evolution.
The powerful energy of retro funky dining, the psychedelic tech-edge of a nightclub or contemporary chic of a luxury hotel; the understated flamboyance of couture or the neo-classic statement of retail; innovating with the already established or experimenting with start-ups—The Grafiosi is versatile, rad and exclusive.
Constructing, creating and communicating brands through aesthetically empowered and functional design is the focus. We work with industries, brands and individuals building specific, unique and global design vocabularies for each. Since 2005, we have provoked the conventional to foster a global design sensibility for India;
The Grafiosi is in constant creation.

STATIONERY TRENDS 2018
As a millennial who travels often, Origin One really caught my eye. From travel journals to road trip planners and even expedition pencils; this brand creates collections specifically designed with the global nomad in mind
Origin One is all brown paper and black and white themes and I love it - it's classic and cool and so far from the usual cutesy stationery boxes that I've come across before and I was so, so excited to dig in I can't even explain!

"...Now we’re starting to get into the stationery proper. The box included this “heart” card which was quickly purloined by my daughter before I could barely even get a look at it! So, I consider that a hit."
