Designer of the Month: Signature Designs

If one word could describe Signature Designs, it’s got to be perfection. Meet Dipti Makhija, the name behind the snowball success and burgeoning fame of Signature Designs, her dream child. She truly takes one’s eyes through a roller coaster ride of functional attributes and visual aesthetics with her umpteen creativity and innovative designs. Team DesignBids congratulates Dipti Makhija in being selected as designer of the month.

How did you get started in the design industry?

I always had a zest for designing even during schooling years. Hence, I was absolutely clear that my goal was to become one of the finest interior designers in the industry. During my course, I researched on old monuments, forts, castles, even while I was travelling, which helped me develop a keen vision for design elements. After working with reputed architects, I was convinced that I can start my own company.

Are there any trends that you love?

Yes! I love inlay designs using different materials, customized false ceiling designs and lights that play a vital role in contemporary designs (numerous light choices are available that provide interesting and clean lines); these help me a lot while designing.

Is there any particular element that you often use in your designs?

Though contemporary designs have always been my style, I try incorporating diverse elements to add elegance and variation to all projects that I work on.

How would you define your personal style?

Clean lines, neutral colors, with accent of metals on lamps, furniture, and art work; so as to keep the style consistent from one room to the other.

What are the main challenges you face as a designer?

With the increase of demand for interior designers, the competition is definitely tough. Besides, convincing clients and completing projects within the proposed budget are the other challenges.

What is the best thing clients say about you?

Clients always appreciate my efforts in guiding them on material selection as per their budget, and my designing skills.

Describe your association with DesignBids?

My association with DesignBids has been for more than 6 months now and I really appreciate their efforts in following up with both clients and designers; and for me, that's value for money. I’m working on quality projects and genuine clients and the best part is we can select projects as per our preferences. I personally like the ‘Invite a Designer’ segment where clients can invite designers to work on their project.

How different is it working with DesignBids?

Yes, DesignBids is definitely different because they value both designers and clients. We are constantly notified about the latest submitted projects and the quality of projects is good too.

Way to go Dipti! Warm wishes from Team DesignBids for all your future accomplishments.
