Every brand has a story
‘Work is my passion’ It’s something we all aim to live by! But this one woman took it seriously! Huma Asgar, the successful founding Director of Doodle Collection has had a long journey of living this very statement. It wasn’t an easy road, albeit laden with colours, design and gorgeous diaries! Huma braved not only a conservative and patriarchal society, but also created a new space for herself in an industry which has long been strongly male-dominated. That makes it a feat in itself, but there’s more! But her way to creating a successful brand like Doodle, has been no bed of roses! Staunch opposition came from the inner circle, citing digitization and the dwindling interest in paper diaries as the reason. But Huma stayed determined and led a team by herself, supervising every aspect of the company, day and night. She now leads a talented Doodle’s workforce, 80% of which is fiercely female!
Doodle Collection, which is a design-centered brand of stylish diaries and planners, started from a deep rooted love for stationery. And this love for stationery stems from Huma’s love for aesthetics and design. Her frequent trips abroad with her husband, who’d be often invested in his company’s branding, made her see a gap in demand and supply of fashionable stationery products. An interior designer by profession, she saw the opportunity in pursuing this as her own setup!
Doodle has been making desks and lives colorful with their diaries, notebooks, planners and lifestyle products. Competition will always pose challenges, but the leadership is strong and there shall be no looking back!

Curious: We are eternal seekers; with ease we can ask silly questions (but never treat others’ ideas or Qs as silly)
Balanced: We love positive energy at work. In fact, we need it— we believe happy people are more efficient and creative.
We encourage leaving work at work and love to hear about our team members doing stuff they are passionate about outside of work.

Fun: This isn’t just a job; it’s a calling, and we love it!
It’s easy to make a buck, it’s a lot tougher to make a difference
