A visual dreamer and innovative designer, Sunil has over three decades of advertising experience. Following a five year Fine Arts Course in Chitrakala Mahavidyalaya, Nagpur – an affiliate of JJ School of Arts, Mumbai – Sunil was campus recruited by RK Swamy. The journey from RK Swamy, then one of the leading advertising agencies in India to JWT, considered the ‘University of Advertising,’ was a truly remarkable one.
