Bombay Duck Designs (BDD) is an independent studio 

founded by Indian illustrator & visual artist, Sameer Kulavoor.

Kulavoor’s area of work lies at the intersection of graphic 

design, contemporary illustration and art. He has been 

creating a personal body of work, and self-publishing art

books and zines that take a look at characteristic mannerisms 

& archetypal facets of urban surroundings, design and culture. 

Sidewalks & Coffeeshops (2009), Zeroxwallah Zine

(2011), The Ghoda Cycle Project (2012), Blued (2013) & 

Oh Flip (flipbooks, 2013) were born out of a keen interest in

these peculiarities.

BDD’s image-making approach coupled with a wide arsenal 

of tools, methods and mediums have worked well for music & 

cultural projects, publications, exhibits, motion graphics, 

animation, advertising and editorials. It is the earliest 

'specialized' independent studio of its kind in India.
