Mahesh Chauhan

Intensely passionate. Believer of dreams. Never-says-die. Nearly forget that I am human.

Life happened to me while I was trying to make something out of it. Challenges in one's teens have the ability to destroy or define an individual for life. I am glad adversity has been a stimulating and an inspiring co-traveler ever since. 

Namrata Nandan

Chief Business Officer
Self-motivated. Believes communication can change the world. Tells it like it is. Loves food, loves talking about food.

In an ever changing, never stationary world, people are what matter the most. Brands make a difference to people’s lives, and as a student of branding it is necessary to be aware of everything that affects people and their choices. Practicing Vipassana taught me that what is within matters the most to change and enhance what is around me. And thereby impact the lives of brands and people who I live, work, and play with.


Deepa Chauhan

Wannabe Tea-Bar owner. Style statement – salt and pepper. Always have a plan B.

From being a jewelry marketer and stylist in another lifetime to domesticity and now advertising and food consultancy (and many hats worn in between) I hope I’m the proverbial rolling stone till the day I die… life is too short to be stuck in one place.

Shiv Chitkara

Business Head
Stubborn. Opinionated. Backs the underdog. Foodie. Info junkie. 

A chance conversation over lunch a decade ago led to a job that in turn led to the discovery of what I now know is my calling. Working with many passionate perspectives to create meaningful work that works, and strikes a chord. 

Mohan B

Brand Partner
Eager Beaver. Engineer by mind. Kannada bibliophile. Biker. Underdog.

The shift from the printing industry to advertising happened by a stroke of luck and I am learning something new every day ever since. Also, being a photographer helps me in the creative process.

Shirish Madghe

Creative Partner
An insomniac, a traveler at heart and a passionate cinema lover.

If i describe 'Salt' in a word, I will call it a BLOCKBUSTER.

Srujan Raorane

Associate Creative Director
Social. Diplomatic. Imaginative. Believes in Team Work. Always a Learner.
Born and brought up in a family of artists, working in advertising was the only ambition. I believe in giving my 100% to every piece of work that is designed.

Akshat Mirgal

IT Associate
My name is AKSHAT, not Akshay or Arshad or Akshad. You might get it wrong the first time, but that's ok.

I'm an I.T. grad, born and brought up in Mumbai, and I manage the IT Systems & Services at SALT.

So, if there is a problem with the net or the systems, you will probably hear my name being called out loud across the office.

And when everything is working fine, you'll find me watching TV Series and Movies at my desk.

Vinayak Hegde

Creative Associate
The creative field is the only place where laziness and brilliance are even mildly related. Salt has taught me that I can always work harder; always push myself to go that extra mile and that the end result is worth all the work put in. I love what I do and get a happy feeling on the inside when I see something I have worked on come to fruition. Salt has shown me that rejection is just a small, necessary part of life and that if you continue to work hard, good things will always follow.

Mohana P

Creative Associate
How do you deal with being a workaholic? I try to reach new heights every day and channel my energy and soul into the work I do. Salt pushes me to do so and expects nothing but my best. I am happy to deliver what I can as early as possible. I have been working in this field for over 9 years and Salt is my favourite place to harness and hone my creative skills. My experience at Salt has been a learning process so far and I would like it to be so in the future as well.

Paresh Patel

Studio Head
I have been a designer, visual artist and studio operator for over 23 years in Advertising. And in that time, I have worked with some of Mumbai’s top and finest agencies. As everyone knows Studio Department is the heart of any Advertising Agency and the roles and responsibilities are quite varied along with intricacies and challenges, yet nothing stops me. I believe in accuracy while designing any artwork even under tight deadlines. I play the Drums and Roto Toms in my free time. My humor is what keeps the atmosphere at work cheerful and encourages my team to work efficiently, to do a job that I absolutely love.

Dipti Chavan

Finance Associate
I am Dipti and I work in the most boring department in an advertising agency: Finance. All work, no fun.

Salt is where my journey began and the past 3 years have taught me everything I know and a little more. My department may be boring but not me. I believe that there is no joy like number-crunching and there is no high greater than collecting retainers.

My Superpower? Eating without getting fat.

Did I also mention that I am a photography enthusiast? (As long as all the photos include me!)

Fun Fact: The financial year ends on my birthday. Guess some things are just meant to be.

Shivani Karnataki

Brand Associate - New Business
Curiosity is my middle name.
Creating powerhouse brands is my game!
I'm usually insanely ticklish, easily amused, and perpetually excited to learn new.
On a daily basis- you'll find me sitting at the back scrolling through dog-pictures, for the lack of a better view.

Harshada Lokhande

Creative Associate
The extrovert trapped in an introvert's body. That's me! Design girl... with designs on the world.

Gauri Salunke

Creative Associate
I'm an overthinker, overthinker and an overthinker.
I don't KERN and tell.
Curiosity hasn't killed me yet.
Not that I am boasting but I did utilise an entire eraser without losing.
I believe that there's beauty in serendipity.
