How it all began?
Design Info didn’t begin its ventures with the name of Design Info. The timeline goes back to 1969 when Saremal began his first venture in Mumbai as a supplier of books at the age of 17. The genre was mainly textiles & fashion magazines. He had an expansive vision to grow the business of fashion and retail magazines. The product was purely B2B and the customer base was widespead in India. Through bits and pieces he laid the foundation of the company and named it Saremals. The core team began with just 4 members who were mainly salesmen. Pricinples of honesty and hardwork with numerous travel tripos accross the country imporved the presence of the company. Textile forecast books and fashion color forecast books were major additions in the 80´s. Aggressive expansion and international investments by companies such a Mudpie into the company grew it to a team of 45 by 1991. In 1992, Rajesh took over as the new Managing Director of the company and headed the entire team. With his core vision into textile intruments and textile color calibration, he rebranded the company into BSA – Bombay Subscription Agency. BSA additionally focused on print designs, textile artworks and volumes as the demand of textile printing in Inda grew. Pantone partnered with BSA in 1998 for color matching books. In 2006, similar brand RAL was introduced.
Brand name “Design Info” was launched in 2008 when BSA decided to venture into photography as an addition to the existing color management business and cater to all professionals in this segment. The concept of color calibration in textiles for monitors, pc and products to have an omnipresence in color, resonated in the photo and video industry as well, where color correction was crucial. Thus the branding of Design Info in photography began with the color correction tools as a market extention. By 2009, Design Info was actively involved in a number of photography accessories such as softbox, video lights, tripods, monopods, lenses, hoods etc. In 2012, gimbals were added as a major SKU to Design info and a number of brands were partnered with.
