    "Vishvakarama" is the divine architect who rules over creativity, design, architecture, painting, manufacturing, and all other types of artistic trades.

    creation is srishti (itrans: sR^iSTi)

    Brahma and Sarasvati rule over srishti, the creation force of the universe.

    in general there is not a word like "a designer", but sanskrit uses the word "maker or doer of". Like a clothes-maker for a seamstress, or a painting-maker for a painter.

    hope that helps some

        Hey thanks for the quick reply. Any other words that could go in that direction of artistic creating designer etc.

        i am a graphic designer in need of another domain name. At the same time I am indian so I would like to link it to that. I am gujarathi. I want a name that people can pronounce a name that doesn't sound feminine or masuclane if possible.

        any thoughts are appreciated

      Freedom dude do you mean to say that Sanskrit can not have Adjective words? A person would have said the same thing about English language If he would have learned English over the internet and if his dictionary would not have shown only the word create instead of creative. lol You are a plain idiot Freedom. Learn Sanskrit first then post here. And If you see this post then go and translate these two words that are left to be translated in this post

      People like freedom do all kinds of crap to earn money. Earn money but please! do not speak like an authority for some language which you have learned by searching over the internet and paying bribe to some Babas in Varanasi. You are just another of those internet Boys who dig internet and keep posting here. You have a motive as well i.e, to promote your spiritual shit business of yoga and all.

    Here are some that are "creator" --

    Adikara "First maker" (aadikara)

    nirmAtR "Maker" (nirmaater)

    dhAtR "Arranger, creator, bearer, founder, etc." (dhaater)

    janana "progenitor, creater" (janana)

    basically there are a ton of "agentive" nouns that could mean this, usually ending with a -tR (ter).
