1. A short presentation of yourself

I’m Yatish Ramdharrysing, 19 years old, living at Port Louis. I’m actually studying Graphic design at the University of Technology of Mauritius. Well, apart from designing, I really like being with my friends. I’m also passionate about photography. Surfing on the net and listening to music also form part of my everyday life.

2. How did you learn and get into graphic design?

I started drawing since my childhood, and continued to do so all through school. I was completely in love with ‘Art’ but had any idea about graphic design at that time.

3 years ago, I found some awesome graphics on a friend’s blog. Soon enough, I was fascinated by computer graphics and spent hours in front of my pc, discovering, exploring and working with Photoshop. And after highschool, I enrolled in Graphic Design at the University of Technology, where I was introduced to Illustrator, Flash, Maya and so on.

3. What inspires you when you’re designing?

I’m so amazed by the adverts shown on MTV or other TV channels. Those animated graphics or photo montage created are simply fantastic. While designing, I gather the main ideas from what I can get from the net or television.

4. What is your graphic universe or style?

Retro fashion is back. Many new fashion designs are inspired by the 50s, 60s or 70s and many more are direct copies from the past. It has never been a better time to look retro and you don’t have to visit a second hand shop to do it. I really like the vintage/retro style. I also like to add a touch of mysticism in the designs.

5. What do you think about Endjoy?

Concerning Endjoy wear, I’m enjoying all the new shirts. They are not only comfortable, but are also creatively designed. I wish there could be a wider variety of graphics created. Continue with the great job. Endjoy simply rocks!

1. A short presentation of yourself

My name is Amdanee Yunus. I live in Beau Bassin , Mauritius. I am a freelance graphic and fashion designer.

2. How did you learn and get into graphic design?

I had always like every form of art. I think it’s a gateway to travel through our emotions and we therefore discover a whole new world which we can share with our surrounding. Emotion is a universal language and art is the medium in which a had chosen to communicate.

During my last years in secondary school I beaceme aware of fashion. The way we dress gave the first impression of who we are. So I started buying branded clothes and entered in the fashion world.Until one day a friend of mine showed me a software which he used to draw. It was corel draw. That day a whole new world opens to me.I was able to CREATE.

3. What inspires you when you’re designing?

I draw according to my state of mind and mood. Because emotions does communicate faster than verbal language.

4. What is your graphic universe or style?

I like art that speaks by itself not by words.

1. A short presentation of yourself
So I am nino .I’m 22 years old.I am a Student in Bsc (Hons) in Textile and Fashion Design at the University of Mauritius(level 2). I lived at Pointe aux Sables.

2. How did you learn and get into graphic design?

I would say that it is my sister who is in the field of producing 3D games at Darkworks in Paris who encouraged me to progress in the graphic design field. Yet at that time I was 14 years old. She taught me the basic of Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver. From this I started to use Photoshop and Illustrator day and night.

3. What inspires you when you’re designing?

I get inspired with things I see every day and my feelings. Inspiration is everywhere, in nature, among cultures, I mean it’s just the way you see life around you and how you interprete it. Feelings come after. It depends whether you’re sad or happy. “Regeneration skull came to my mind when I was feeling sad”.

4. What is your graphic universe or style?
I am very open to all style. As I said earlier, it is just a question of feelings. But my works are often associated with psychedelic world, where you have elements of dreams and fantasy. I’m also influenced with the androgynous style where you
can found swishy patterns.

5. What do you think about Endjoy?

Personally I think that Endjoy wear is doing a lots of evolution in Mauritius. I do appreciate this.

1. A short presentation of yourself

Hello. I’m Fabien Manuel, commonly known as gomeZ – a right brain thinker and maker of things. I live in St Pierre near Moka. Five years ago, I caught a bug, an insatiable need to create, a need to get better at creating. I’ve been chasing the sense of achievement that comes from putting an idea down, seeing it grow, take shape, and have it exist out there, I just stop working recently to take the time to experiment more on design and finding my style, I like to trail run and  be involve in activities in contact with nature.

2. How did you learn and get into graphic design?

I am self-taught, I went to a school to learn more, but discovered that they only teach methodology and it’s just another business .

3. What inspires you when you’re designing?

I’m inspired by everything around me, I think that every visual object can be interpreted into design but in the end I believe that everything created by man was inspired by nature because it was the only thing that was here first. I like to say that design itself was inspired by nature, me as well if I follow this thought.

4. What is your graphic universe or style?

I am actually working on finding my style, it’s very hard but I know I will make it.

5. What do you think about Endjoy?

I’ve recently known the brand myself but I think that it is mainly associated with electro music, while when diversifying it’s identity may give rise to a wider audience.
