Straight out of education I landed my first graphic design job for a stationery wholesaler. Here is where I actually learnt all my design skills. I spent 12 years in this company and gained extensive knowledge. I finally came to a point where I wanted to use all this knowledge and skills and apply it in a different way, in a way that I wasn't able to do so before. T o design and sell stationery that I am passionate about.
As I walked around various shops to get inspired, I kept getting drawn to the wedding stationery (I have been in and out of the events industry for about 21 years as a hobby/weekend job). Here is where I noticed there weren't any physical planners for an Indian wedding. I remembered some problems that my cousins and friends were having with existing wedding planners, it was then clear to me where I had to start and what I had to do.
THIS IS HOW & WHEN IT ALL BEGAN FOR
I asked cousins and friends for pictures of their planners and I was not surprised at all with what they showed me. Some ladies made their own sections in notebooks but were still confused and couldn't find their own information.
Lack of sections therefore all the bride's information was everywhere and muddled up.
Big, bulky, messy, unattractive. Need I go on?
I started designing.
I was glued to my desk for 3-4 months. I gave up my family life and social life but it was all totally worth it.
If you want it bad enough, you'll find a way and do it.
Samples arrived and a photoshoot began for the website and social media.
Planners got checked off and mass production was done, now it's finally here and I was so bloody excited. I had neighbours peering out from behind their curtains and others coming out to ask questions and to help.
Carrying those boxes into the house
were a workout in itself.
My gym workout was done for that week.
My arms were hurting so much.

P.S. For those who have asked and/or maybe thinking "why Mangos? how did you come up with that for a business/brand name?"
Well, it's very simple. It's the first three letters of my first name and the first three letters of my surname and placed them together.
