📜 About Sachin Meshram

I post awesome videos every week on everything design. Born and brought up in Nagpur, commonly known as the Orange City of India, like most youngsters, I pursued my B Tech in Petrochemical Engineering. After working for a while, I realized that I was not satisfied with the work at the Chemical plant as I was always inclined towards something more creative. I found animation interesting as a concept as I found this as a medium where I could give motion to my thoughts. I am a postgraduate in Animation Design from Industrial Design Center IIT-Bombay. I’m a professional Designer from India. In the last 8 years, I have worked with some of the very well- known startups in India and learned anything and everything that is needed to create amazing experiences for the users. Subscribe to my channel and I will provide free education about motion graphics, UI design, Adobe XD, Adobe After Effects, Premiere tutorials.
