Sarbat or Sharbat is a popular West and South Asian drink that is prepared from fruits or flower petals. It is sweet and served chilled. It can be served in concentrate form and eaten with a spoon or diluted with water to create the drink. Sharbat is a cooler beverage served during hot summers in India. Sharbat is derived from Arabic word ‘Sharbah’, meaning ‘a drink’.
The word Sarbat means in my mother tongue, its a juice which is so common in India as a street food. Different parts of india has different varieties of Sarbat, all of them are different in colour and flavour, and taste. Some are even double coloured similar to Falooda, if you know it. About an year ago, I was in such a shop and thinking what to design and suddenly this popped up in my mind, then I got really interested into taking the clicking pictures, and picking the colour combos. Later I started to travel to different places and picked up all the possible Sarbat that I can, and took colours from them. It actually took me almost 13 months to come up with that design, and of course its for free download.
I don’t really get inspired from the things that’s already created, I like going further. I get inspired from living and non living objects around me. Would you believe if I say you can get inspired by a not so good selling fruit shop next door?
When I start a project I like to pick the fonts from scratch, it could be the weirdest combination ever, and you know there is always a way to make it better. I spend lot of time thinking about the design. So when I sit in front of a computer it would only be creating what my thoughts are. I don’t rely on photoshop or sketch, but I rely on the thought. Inspirations are everywhere, not on your computer screen. Go out to the nature, or to a fish market or to a coffee shop, get inspired from your girlfriend’s dress or the bucket in your bathroom, or from the movie show ticket. The inspirations around you are limitless.
