SRM University

“It is my pleasure to write a note of support for Nitin Palla who is one of SRM University's most outstanding student leaders. To him unique credit, he organized a highly successful workshop on photography which was the first ever for the school.

I observed that he continuously puts in more effort to learn and keeps working it till he gets the accurate results. He achieved good recognitions and scholarships for his work and his extremely competitive attitude and way of analyzing real time situations made him stand top among the students of his department.

I often had the opportunity to observe his creativity, capacity for deep analytical thinking and strong background knowledge in the subject. In him, I find the commitment desirous of a good student, meticulous with right blend of aptitude, merit and determination.

With great appreciation, I support Nitin, without reservation.”

Work Process

“If you can't describe what you are doing as a process,
you don't know what you're doing.”

It makes sense to me to break down things and simplify them, taking one step at a time, rather than breaking my head over something so complicated that I can't even wrap my head around it. I have a very simple work process that I follow all the time.

1. Idea
2. Sketch
3. Design
4. Develop
5. Test
6. Launch

Generate ideas, put them on paper, frame designs, develop the idea into reality, test for bugs and finally launch.
That's just it...Simple, isn't it?
