Minal Kharkar RGD

Always fascinated about story telling and this Chinese proverb summarizes my story - A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

The passion behind MK Branding + Design started over 2 decades ago in one of Mumbai, India’s best art schools. After receiving my BFA, I began my artistic career with an ad agency based in Regina, Saskatchewan; this would also be the start of my Canadian journey as well.

Eventually, Toronto became my home and I enjoyed 15 exciting years as the Senior Graphic Designer with Scholastic Canada. I have always been very passionate about the creative process, and I make it unique by infusing it with strategic and solution-based ideas.

As more lucrative freelance opportunities presented themselves along the way, so did the desire to create my own brand.

Building a distinctive brand essence, creating a strong visual presence, and differentiating brands from their competition is my absolute passion. I believe that a brand is a promise that a company makes to their customers and I want to help you do exactly that.

I am a dedicated brand designer and with the support of a team of freelancers, we use our talents to build relationships with clients to bring their visions to life.

Culture is a very important part of my personal life and I try to align with initiatives that blend cultural awareness and humanity. My recent project, a website redesign of, is a great example of my free-spirited creative thinking. I explore and experiment with design in a creative way that is both unique and rewarding.

I'm an RGD Member because...

“Becoming an RGD member was one of the best moves I could have made, especially when making the switch back to being a freelancer. Initially, the transition seemed a bit daunting but I found that having the RGD designation and connecting to the design community was comforting and empowering.”

The best part about the RGD is...

“The RGD designation is recognized as a representation of integrity, professionalism, quality, and competence. On a personal level, I appreciate RGD’s commitment to continuous learning, research, and mentorship.”
