Bhintuna “Jya-Poo” is a graduate of anthropology. During her +2, she took a Professional Diploma in 3D Animation and Visual Effects (PD3D) as a hobby. After four years of working in animation, she realised her love for graphic design.
While freelancing as a designer, she could not find a proper planner, dot grid graph notebook or well-designed stationery in Nepal. Very often she would hear complaints about not having choices in stationeries in the Nepali market, and she then thought of creating a creative stationery line.
Bhav Products started in December 2014 as an opportunity to provide stationery lovers in Nepal with quality, designed notebooks relatable to the Nepali crowd at affordable prices. Bhav Products can be purchased online at www.bhavproducts.com and from their store in Jhochhen, Kathmandu.
In this issue of Business 360, Bhintuna “Jya-Poo” shares her pick of top brands.
