When did you start Design By Megha and what was the intention?
In the words of Megha Lohia, founder of Design By Megha:
It has been over 20 years since I have been a part of the Graphic Design world. I began with a short stint at a corporate followed by freelancing. I came across a variety of design projects and clients that helped me grow, update and share my knowledge to the maximum.
Design by Megha as my label started in 2017 when I saw the demand for online presence. The intention of Design by Megha is to make sure the product of my clients looks good on all digital media, as result increasing their sales.
Design by Megha – Doodles was one side of me I didn’t know existed until lockdown. I experimented and decided to share my doodles with the world through my social media @design.by.megha.
Gradually, I put my doodles onto products and it was heartening to see people loving it! Today, Design by Megha offers the following – Branding, social media content, infographics, illustrations, stationery & event design.
What was the biggest challenge you faced in starting the company?
Graphic design especially for social media was already a very competitive market when I decided to step into it. I realised I needed an update myself with the latest practices and tools required for effectively managing social media and what I used 15 years ago will definitely not work.
What is the biggest mistake you made while starting your company in the initial few years?
Underpricing, not having a proper structure initially, managing time and not being able to properly communicate my ideas to my team were some of the bigger challenges I faced when I started.
If there was one thing you could advice to a budding woman entrepreneur, what would it be?
If you understand how to manage your time, the rest will all fall in place. One hour of total focus is equal to several hours of work with distractions.

"I chose to go out into the remote, wild, unknown, and make it home," says entrepreneur Kiranjeet Ahluwalia Chaturvedi, who owns Birdsong & Beyond.
The story of my mountain home Birdsong & Beyond started taking shape in 2009, on the internet, the way many stories do these days.
My childhood fascination for a life in the Himalayas led to an internship with a central Himalayan NGO instead of a much prized corporate assignment. But when they offered me a full-time job, I refused. I was overcome by fear and a lack of confidence.
My other longings pulled me away – the longing to fit in, to earn validation from others. By my mid-30s, with all the trappings of a middle-class urban life in place, the call of the snows couldn’t be ignored anymore. So I got to work on it with clearer intentions and a stronger sense of what I needed for myself, and why.
Many Indian elderly are firm believers in enslaving a daughter-in-law in the name of tradition which is actually a tradition of oppression and not of religious faith.
Albeit, the popular culture has interpreted scriptures as suggesting that Kanyadaan is the supreme form of donation given to someone, the connotation that the word donation alludes to definitely objectifies the girl.
Even when the exegesis justify the act of giving away the daughter, considering it a ritual to mark the initiation of the daughter into her husband’s gotra and her becoming the part of his family tree.
There is no denial of the fact that this initiation is not required on the part of the groom thereby formally denoting the end of the filial ties with the daughter as it was popularly instructed to the bride during the Vidai ceremonies:
