She is extremely creative and has excellent problem-solving skills. Her concepts were always interesting. Shoot a ‘Why?’ question and she can provide the rationale behind her design decisions always. Her soft skills made it easy to communicate with her on a daily basis. She can lead a team being a team player. If you get an opportunity to work with Merinal, grab it. I'm sure, you will be happy with your decision.

Creativity. New ideas. A train of new ideas... describes Brunda in a nutshell. She thinks way too out of the box and her concepts are really cool. Coming up with new characters, assigning new traits, creating new worlds altogether are all her forte. She's got the finesse of an author and inherently is an artist. The projects she handled as far as I can remember all came to completion. She'll up the ante, then stabilize. Then up the ante further and it kinda becomes hygiene. It's fun working with Brunda.

I really enjoyed working with Brunda. I can call her a ‘thinking machine’. She can come up with new animation/game concepts in any given topic spontaneously.She has excellent storytelling skills and presents her concepts to the team with clarity and confidence. Her artistic talent helped the animators and the developers to visualize the flow of shots effortlessly.I admire her work ethic and commitment to her projects. She has always worked with great passion to push quality with due diligence. I highly recommend her.

Brunda was an excellent creative writer and can think anything out of the box for creating unique and exciting game ideas, she was a hard-working member of a hard-working game development team. She was known to put in unrelenting effort and time for getting new concepts of Games and keep the Game development team moving with new products.
