Sagnik Sengupta is a Designer / Animator at Perception. He hails from the city of Kolkata, the cultural capital of India and home to prominent intellectuals. He grew up in an environment surrounded by painters, sculptors and singers. Diving into the creative industry was an obvious choice.
Sagnik holds more than 10 years of industry experience focused in the field of motion design. He has worked on projects that range from channel rebranding, print media, live shoot to handling lead visuals for various projects.
Before joining Perception, Sagnik held the position of a Supervising Producer for Viacom18 Media Pvt. Ltd., India handling OAP graphics for channels like MTV, MTV Beats, VH1 and Comedy Central. It was at MTV India that he dived into the medium of live shoot and handled two music videos with prominent Hip Hop celebrities that earned him his first Promax India Gold and Silver. In addition to that, two of his motion designs projects that he handled while working for TenSports India got featured in ‘Creative Gaga’ magazine and in ‘100 Motion Design Projects You Can’t Miss’, a curated book by Wang Shaoqiang. But, it was his first self made motion design project which got featured in Motionserved, a curated page by Behance for motion design that gave him the push he needed to continue on this path more confidently.
Sagnik believes in delivering unique and compelling stories through any visual medium he’ll be working on, with the help of the right visual palette, a rich concept, or both. He is thrilled and grateful to be part of the team at Perception as he feels he is at the right spot when the world is turning towards content driven platforms and innovative/interactive technology that demands a curated visual landscape to take it forward, which Perception has been a pioneer of.
When not working, Sagnik usually likes to devote his time either shredding on his guitar or doing long rides on his motorcycle. He wishes to participate in the Baja or the Dakar Rally someday.
