Sameer Kulavoor

Bombay Duck Designs (BDD) is an independent studio founded by Indian illustrator & visual artist, Sameer Kulavoor.

Kulavoor’s area of work lies at the intersection of graphic design, contemporary illustration and art. He has been creating a personal body of work, and self-publishing artbooks and zines that take a look at characteristic mannerisms & archetypal facets of urban surroundings, design and culture. Sidewalks & Coffeeshops (2009), Zeroxwallah Zine (2011), The Ghoda Cycle Project (2012), Blued (2013) & Oh Flip (flipbooks, 2013) were born out of a keen interest in these peculiarities.

BDD’s image-making approaches coupled with a wide arsenal of tools, methods and mediums have worked well for music & cultural projects, publications, exhibits, motion graphics, animation, advertising and editorials. It is the earliest 'specialized' independent studio of its kind in India. He is the co-founder and co-curator of 100%ZINE.
