Pune is a city in Western India, often referred to as Oxford of the East. In lies Pune, the growth roots of many software organizations that have survived all the booms and busts of western markets. One of them is TechMahindra, which has offices in as many as 3 locations in Pune. The office that I am talking about is in the heart of the city, on the bustling Karve Road.
TechMahindra has always been inspiring designers like me to express their “solution mindset” to the problems no one cares about.
I took in my stride the necessity to design my own solutions that will help me on the job – two examples have already been shared through the blog posts – the Elevators infographics and the RUS infographic.
To a new employee, the first day in Karve Road office is memorable in many ways. The credit goes to the architecture of the connected TechMahindra buildings – the Sharda Center and Annex. The day starts with “no parking” in the designated office parking to accidentally landing up in parking by stairs, losing the way from Sharda Center to Annex and vice versa during lunch time, the orientation program on first day, etc are all too much too imbibe on the joining day.
I created an infographic – 4 column fold-out that explains the various activities that happen on 1st day in TechMahindra. There is a visual path that directs the reader / user to understand what they are supposed to do.
I submitted this design to the HR in 2013.
