Abin Khamathmannadi, MD at Designa Associates

Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

Abin Khamathmannadi: The idea for Designa Associates came from a lifelong dream of owning a company combined with a passion for designing. After learning graphic design and working in the industry for some time, I was convinced that I am ready to start my own company. When the perfect moment came, with the help of my partners, I took the leap. It wasn't easy, and there were certainly challenges along the way, but my passion for design and determination to succeed kept me going.

Now, I am grateful for the chance to pursue my aspirations and assist our customers in bringing their intended concepts into actuality using what we offer.

Great Companies: If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?

Abin Khamathmannadi: As a person who struggled a lot and still does in many ways as a Managing Director of a Creative Agency, I want to say always stay curious and never stop learning. In addition, I would like to emphasize the importance of consistency and trusting the process. As the saying goes, "Rome wasn't built in a day." Consistency is the key to achieving long-term success, both personally and professionally. The process can be messy, unpredictable, and full of challenges. But by trusting the process and staying committed to the work, one can achieve great things.

Like Winston Churchill said, "If you're going through hell, keep going."
