Lakshmi Venkatesh

Designer

From a loud city of madness, Mumbai, India, Lakshmi started out as a student of computer science and worked as a software engineer for a short time. She dabbled in design projects of her own, and for a few clients, on the side. Her creative side finally won the battle for influence over her goals and she set out on a mission to become a professional designer. Lakshmi moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in December 2013 to pursue her dreams and obtained an Associate’s degree in Graphic Design from Mission College, Santa Clara. Her creative energy is fueled by inspiration from intriguing designs and great works of art. She made her way to First Person on the recommendation of two of her professors, where she started as an intern and quickly secured a position as designer.

Lakshmi loves travel photography and exploring new cities and is always planning her next vacation to a new destination. She especially enjoys visiting ghost towns, and has a love for horror movies—her favorites being ‘Silence of the Lambs,’ and ‘The Birds.’
