Rahul Chandh is a well-known face to everyone at CrowdStudio. He’s a designer from Chandigarh who loves travelling, mountains and motorcycles. He recently purchased a Royal Enfield Bullet with his winnings and fulfilled a lifelong dream - to go riding through the mountains on a motorcycle.
We caught up with him this week for a quick chat.
Coffee. 3 times a day!
A typical day would be spent at the office, checking my mail first thing in the morning before moving on to my design projects. By day I’m a typical office-goer and by night I’m a freelancer.

They do actually. The curiosity to explore, the desire to learn is a part of both. Whether you’re a designer or traveler, you need lots of imagination, observation and patience.

Shimla, Kasauli, Manali…I’ve gone to many places in Himachal Pradesh. My last trip was to the Rohtang Pass on my Bullet. I’ve made a few trips to Morni Hills in Haryana. I’ve also been to Rajasthan and Amritsar, but most of my journeys have been in the hilly regions.
Nothing dramatic, but me and some of my friends had planned a 3-day trip to Hatu Peak in Narkanda, Himachal Pradesh. We left on August fifteen and were forced to return that very evening because of office work!

Competition, definitely. But the thing is, it never felt like a competition. It’s been exactly one year since I joined CrowdStudio and during that time I’ve made many good friends with the designers here. We’re all very close. There are no hard feelings after a contest and we congratulate whoever wins.
This platform is about more than making extra cash. There is a great community of talented designers with different skills. Some are college students, some are full-time freelancers. Some of them are like me - they work somewhere during the day and freelance by night. But no matter who or where they are, everyone is ready to help and support one another.
(laughs) Nothing! It’s no secret - I need money to fulfil my dreams, so I work hard. That’s all there is to it.
