“I get excited about combining technology and design to make the end product look amazing, and wow the client.”
Vanita’s path to Benz—and graphic design—was a circuitous one. Early in her career, she was focused on becoming a computer engineer. But after taking a travel break, she helped a friend with some web design work and instantly discovered her love for graphic design. She immediately went back to school, earning an associate degree in Graphic Communications from the City College of San Francisco.
Known for her relaxed demeanor, Vanita brings a graceful style to her work. With nearly a decade of experience, she consistently impresses all with her creative and engaging approach to design, along with her technical expertise.
Before joining Benz, she worked at marketing agency HH Global, where she was an onsite digital designer for Google. There, she was tasked with developing and executing print and digital advertising, marketing, and email campaigns. Before that, she worked as a web/graphic designer for Scandinavian Designs and Gump’s.
At Benz, Vanita works across a range of clients, infusing her unique design sensibilities into every project. She is our go-to designer for internal projects, and works on a range of client campaigns. She describes her work as having an understated, minimalist tone.
Outside of work, Vanita has two passions: her dog, a Coton de Tulear, and traveling to exotic destinations such as India, Australia, England, France, New Zealand, and Bali. She was raised for a short time in Goa, India, but spent most of her life in Toronto.
She now calls San Francisco home, and enjoys exploring the city’s cuisine and the region’s challenging terrain (she’s an avid hiker). If you want to chat her up, try talking about home décor—Vanita is a big fan of apartment therapy.
