Subodh Deshpande

Subodh was fascinated early in life, by creation, by Mad Magazine, by graffiti, by cinema – he wanted to create. He found happiness decoding the meaning of brands as a brand planner in an ad agency. He joined Innate Motion recently to help brands find their human purpose. He loves writing about the world that surrounds and intrigues him. He wishes to someday spend all his time writing about things and phenomena that make him wonder is it just him or do others also see this? He lives in Singapore.
