Ahlawat has a Masters Degree in Graphic Design from The
Glasgow School
of Art, UK. Previous to that he also spent a
semester at
Indiana-Purdue University, USA focusing on
design thinking and
leadership. He is a graduate of the
National Institute of Design,
Ahmedabad.

Trained at Lars Mullers Switzerland and Faber & Faber, UK,
Ahlawat has
a varied and interesting work experience. He has
worked closely on
different design assigments with Penguin,
Faber and Faber, Hachette,
Little Brown, Hodder, HarperCollins,
Harper Perennial, Random House,
Quercus, and Roli.

His overlapping interests in art and literature not only made
him
pursue a career in publishing but also informs his keen
interest in
visual authorial interventions and curatorship. This
allowed Gunjan to
shape the visual personality of the book at
every step of its
creation. Ahlawat also enjoys the many ways
and
levels at which a designer can take narrative construction
forward
through type and image.

Besides publishing, Ahlawat also has a panache for art and
culture
oriented projects, which led him to some interesting
collaborations
with institutions like the National Institute of
Design, The Glasgow
School of Art and The City Palace, Jaipur.
