Rohan’s expedition in education has been driven by his love for design, and the wish to help students express themselves visually in an articulated manner. He has been a visiting faculty, guest juror, and guest interviewer at VNSGU. Apart from this, he also co-founded a non-profit that organizes design talks, student portfolio reviews by professional designers, and workshops for design students.
After being awarded an MA in Graphic Design from SCAD-Atlanta in 2008, Rohan worked in the United States for a year; after which he decided to move back to his hometown Surat to begin his own practice in the field of communication design—something that the city was lacking at the time.
In his free time, he enjoys attending art and design events like the Pune Design Fest or the Kala Ghoda, and sometimes writes design critiques for Communication Arts magazine UK for popular global rebrands.
At Auro Design School, Rohan’s mission is to inspire students the way he was inspired by global design educators that taught him—ensuring that students not only learn but are also armed with a great portfolio that can open doors for them. He teaches studios related to communication, brand identity, typography, publication design, package design, and interaction design.
