Having worked in both brands and agencies, he brings to the table a wealth of experience in concept development, creative designing and client interfacing.
Surfraaz Gola first got hooked on to naming when Eddna Samuel, Director of Motif Advertising hired him to create a name for their client’s first product launch. “With his fresh, original and quirky naming style, Surfraaz soon became THE go-to resource for leading branding and naming firms around the country. He specializes in crafting names, which can be trademarked and registered. Since then, he has created hundreds of names for a variety of products including snacks, software, star hotels, sportswear, shoes, ice-creams, and restaurants,” says Eddna Samuel, Director, Motif India.

Roger Darashah, Founding Partner, LatAm Intersect PR, said in his Linkedin recommendation, "Surfraaz helped me to self-publish my first book, ‘The Theory of Adjacent Conversations’. He brought the concepts to life with his intelligent use of design and made the book more compelling and readable. The subject included some difficult and complex concepts, but Surfraaz invested his time and energy in understanding them. The result - my first book - was fantastic."
