My name is Pria Rajput, Principal Designer and CEO of Black Label Designs (BLD).
My world has always been surrounded by art. For as long as I could remember, my mind has been focused on finding creative outlets. Growing up, I enrolled in art during middle school, specializing in clay sculpting and canvas paintings. In high school I studied architecture, which lead to studying architectural technology, leading to opportunities to freelance with agencies, creating set designs and storyboards, curating makeup and hair looks and acting as a team lead. I gained expert knowledge in creative interior design as well as unique brand marketing abilities and 3D rendering design, which is a rare combination. I have experience working as a junior space planner and drafter for the City of Edmonton with their Sustainability Department, where I conducted furniture plans and managed to track information for all buildings owned by the City. I then grew to a CAFM drafter and space planner position at the University of Alberta Institute.
I was responsible for multi-million dollar projects that ranged from designing and redesigning institutional spaces to tracking space, site verification, creating room numbering schematics, and Institutional building drawings. I essentially managed every pocket of space owned by the University of Alberta. I also partnered with Synced Interactive, an interactive technology company to rebrand and strategize the company’s business model and reach its ultimate business goals. Acting as a team lead for sealing deals with high-profile organizations and space planning to implement digital technology products. With this experience, Black Label Designs was established, a creative design studio that specializes in curating custom designs tailored to each client’s needs. We create as you speak.
