The moment we laid our eyes on a friend's wedding invitation designed at Pathrika, we knew that our search for a good designer would end here. Mekala is an extremely talented, creative and understanding person who meticulously absorbed all our requirements and came up with a design that we were floored by. She gave us her inputs every step of the way and patiently and promptly catered to our requests (as well as OCDs). Right from conceptualization to execution, the process of working with her was extremely smooth despite the time zone differences. Highly recommended working with Mekala. In her words "Indian weddings are so colorful... Why should the invitations be monochrome?" Couldn't agree more. :)

We were looking for an unique invite, something which showed as much our roots as it did our interests. We were smitten with the designs on Pathrika's site and social media pages and decided to contact her. Mekala was super understanding and gave great insights into what kind of designs would be best for us. It didn't take as long as we thought it would and the preliminary design was almost what we wanted. A few modifications and we were all set. Oh my! the feedback we received when we distributed our cards. we thought we loved the card. But people loved it even more! It was innovative, crisp and artful. The entire experience from conceptualisation to delivery was fluid and concern free. Mekala made us extremely comfortable with all aspects of the process. She is super responsive. All in all, great experience and a lovely lasting design.

My search for a card designer was like a never ending match that went on for 2 months and finally 3-4 weeks before my wedding, I came across Pathrika and decided to give a try. Just speaking to Mekela once was enough for me to trust her with my cards. I was looking for doodle style cards colorful cards and Mekela ticked off all boxes. Mekela did an amazing job with my cards. She transformed my ideas into such beautiful designs in a very short span of time. Mekela went out of her way to make my cards as we were very close to the wedding day when I contacted her. Mekela is very accommodating and she ensured all changes and edits were done as per decided scheduled. She suggested me not just designs but also the words that would look good on cards. Her choice of color palettes is phenomenal and all my family and friends loved her cards a lot. I had a certain theme in mind for my cards and Mekela transformed them into such quirky and beautiful cards that looked liked a visual treat. The cards designed by her captured me and my fiancé's personality in quirky designs and doodles I would strongly recommend Mekela for anyone looking for creative wedding cards

The best online experience with Mekala. She understood the requirements and made the best personalized card for us. I coordinated with her from USA and she printed the cards and delivered it to my parents house in Maharashtra. Good for price and very fast design and delivery.

I was looking for someone to design a personalized fun wedding card to invite our friends and colleagues. I can’t thank enough to Mekala for designing a beautiful 3 insert colorful card depicting various events and our multi-cultural wedding. All through out she gave our ideas to live and was extremely patient with our multiple requests to edit design. Invitation that she designed for us have received accolades from every one and it puts a smile on anyone who sees it . Having her design our wedding invitation was one of my best decisions. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a unique and personalized wedding card ! Much thanks and kudos to Mekala.

My fiance and I would like to strongly recommend Mekala to anyone out there who is interested in having a card designed for any event. Mekala is an extremely talented artist, with a strong creative and innovative bent to her art, the willingness to listen to her client's ever-changing needs, and the ability to respond effectively and quickly with a design that exceeded our highest expectations. She made our wedding invitation card, and every single recipient has told us it is one of the most unique, beautiful, and fun cards they have ever seen. We found Mekala through an internet search, and were blown away by some of the various designs she had made. We still had some doubts about whether she would be able to realize our vision for the card design, since it was so personalized. I like biking and my fiance likes running, and so we had a rudimentary idea about a card that depicted both. With the very limited input we provided her, she came up with a suggestion to make a sliding card that shows me on a bicycle catching up to my fiance running, with a lovely park background and creative Indian details throughout. She Skyped with my fiance in order to confirm the design and brainstorm how to make it quirky and unique for our taste, but also appeal to the older generation. She captured our features very accurately from the few pictures we had sent, and made a near-perfect design on the first go. We wanted to try out a few color changes, add Ganesha symbols, and even came up with last minute additions for a Sangeet card, two RSVP cards, and repeated text changes. Mekala didn't hesitate in the least, and turned out truly unique, aesthetically beautiful, and eye catching designs for each of the items we asked. Through the process, she was extremely prompt (even when we weren't), worked around our schedule, met our tight timelines, coordinated with the printing press and ensured they corrected some card assembly mistakes they had made, and turned out a beautiful end product. Our friends are now saying they want to get her help for their future card designs!

Mekala was awesome! We worked with her for our wedding invitation and she made the entire experience so wonderful for us...and we got the most gorgeous card! She really understands this medium...she understood our brief perfectly and was able to translate it into a very vibrant design. I would like to specially commend her timely response and quick turnaround....despite living many time zones away! If you need a thoughtful artist to design your cards and make it a one-of-a-kind work of art, look no further than Mekala!

Worked with Mekala on our wedding invitation. It includes a lot of illustrations depicting various factual Tambrahm events. I must just say that she did a fabulous job with the design. The highlights I would like to mention are, here timely response and pace of her work, the capability to understand what a customer needs, ability to convert that exactly into illustrations, adding her creativity and style on top of the design, professionalism, and most importantly the classy product (invitation) itself. I would highly recommend her for all kinds of wedding invitations (especially to people from India). Guys, its super worth it. Mekala, I wish you all success in your future endeavors. Keep up the good work. I will surely work with you very soon :)
