I worked with Naval for almost one year and a half. It was the first job for me in an agency (coming from the client side) and having an art director like Naval helped me a lot to cope and learn a lot about the advertising world from an agency angle. What makes Naval special is that he has a lot of skills that you can rarely find in an art director, he is an inspiring manager, a team player, a good listener, a teacher and no one can manage a project better than him. It's been a real pleasure working with him.

I have known Naval for over a decade now, both as a colleague and as a very good friend. He has always displayed a keen sense of design with a knack of picking up contemporary trends, which are put to good use. Painstakingly does all his homework. Utterly non-political and perpetual willingness to learn and improve.

Naval was one of the first people I hired when I was building my creative department at BBDO and I never regretted it. He’s a hard worker and an innovative thinker. I quickly grew to depend on Naval and he never let me down. I haven’t been surprised to see him go on to more success over the past few years.

It was indeed a pleasure working with Naval while at BBDO, Abu Dhabi. An extremely fertile mind and a lateral thinker, Naval was always quick in coming up with fresh ideas. And equally amazing was the speed with which he generated them impeccably....extremely dependable too.

Working with Naval has always been a pleasure. Surprise and awe are some of words that rightly describe ones reaction when you get his presentation in your inbox. Naval is well informed and well travelled. which helps him to create designs that are modern and at the same time logical. He is also constantly upgrading his skills in softwares and design that help the client to treat his brand in a varied style. My association with Naval has been over more than a decade and there have been creative differences that have finally led to a fabulous product at the end.
As a person, Naval is open to new idea without being too rigid. At the same time, he applies common sense and has a fierce mind of his own when he is creating art. Good luck to him in all his future endeavors.
