Who are we

We are an independent communication design studio with a compelling vision for the future.Our team partners our strategic thinking and is always free to tell us when we are going wrong. We make mistakes to learn, we choose to instill empathy in our work and hailing from diverse backgrounds equip us to be stronger than yesterday.

Founder, DirectorSANJAY JOSHI

A staunch perfectionist, he believes that in order to create, inspire or dazzle the world all we need is a brilliant out-of-the-box idea. He was relentlessly looking for that one idea that would kick him out of the bed and make him run to work with a renewed zeal. And he ultimately found it in 2002 when he founded Monkey Wrench.

Creativity cannot be acquired at a fancy institution with a flawless degree.

'I believe in order to create, inspire or dazzle the world; all we need is an idea. Once you’ve cracked an idea and figured out who will laugh or relate to it the most, that’s marketing for you. These things cannot be learnt in textbooks,' says Joshi.

Founder, DirectorPAWAS SHAH

Everyone's big daddy at Monkey Wrench, Shah has always been fascinated by creative work - be it a beautiful illustration or an eye-catching line - it’s the love for pixels and words that drove him to create Monkey Wrench solely dedicated to a bunch of people who share the same love as him.

'On a regular Sunday afternoon, while chilling and debating over a good name for our graphic design studio, a hard nut fell on my head and cracked an idea open. I told Joshi excitedly, ‘I have a name.’ And that’s how our baby, Monkey Wrench let out its first cackle,' says Shah.

Creative DirectorASHIS MRIDHA

Journeying through Contract Advertising, Bates, Grey Worldwide, Capgemini and owning several awards, including a Cannes Lion - Ashis feels that observation & travel has paved the way for him - apart from cooking up a storm in his kitchen with his love for fresh ingredients and organic food!

Right from the days of art college, Ashis carries a strong belief that art & advertising bear a strong connect. If only people could choose to step out of their air-conditioned homes & offices and take a bus ride, they would probably grasp this connection even better.

After working with national & global brands spanning across various industries like Louis Philippe, Turtle, Grameenphone, HSBC, Godrej, Coca Cola, ITC, Kerala Ayurveda, ABP, Marico, Dell, Cisco, The Leela Palace, Amante, Aegon Religare, Visa India, Cadbury, Spice Telecom, and Infosys - Ashis believes that human insight defines excellence in communication.

Head of Client ServicingKusumanjan Banerjee

With an unbridled appetite for wanderlust, Kusumanjan has always believed in travelling the uncharted roads. It's no wonder then that after graduating from St. Xavier's College, Kolkata with a degree in commerce, he decided to work with Teach for India - where he learned how communication and marketing can bring about a positive impact in the lives of people. This, in turn, led him to the corridors of Response India and JWT, India - where, for the last eight years, he has been working with clients like Tata, Linc, Exide, Joy and more.

Associate Creative DirectorMadhura Chakravarty

Balancer of work & life. Solo traveller. Copywriter. Exactly in that order.

After a stint at Ogilvy & Mather in Delhi & Kolkata, Madhura realised she's cut-out for a smaller hot-shop - a place that is disciplined to create art and communication that inspires, engages and educates. Madhura thinks graphic design is more of a story-teller than advertising because it has greater precision. After working with brands like Vodafone, Greenply, ITC, Linc Pens, Chai Break, Joy Cosmetics & more, she's currently aiming to make content on business cards interesting.
