Neel Panchal is a multi-disciplined Creative Director and Graphic Designer born and raised in North West London, UK with over 15 years experience in the industry. His creative experience ranges from design agencies, branding, fashion, food and beverage, and the music industry for the past 7 years.
He is currently the Director of Design at BMG and founder of The Studio, an award-winning creative agency built within BMG which caters to their artists. The Studio has an expansive portfolio which includes global campaigns, festival visuals, album art, bespoke box sets and book design. The Studio team has had the privilege, under Neel's supervision, to work on projects for Fatboy Slim, the Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Trojan Records, Strictly Rhythm and Kylie Minogue, to name just a few.
As a designer, Neel has continued to follow the principle of concept focus throughout his career (“Anyone can make anything look great, but if there’s an idea behind it, it’ll have a longer expiry date”), while staying true to a clean minimal (and maxi-minimal) approach.
Neel is relationship driven and takes a philosophical mind-set to briefs: “If it means something to you, we need to understand why - and share this with the world.”
