Prasad Raghavan studied graphic design at Trivandrum College of Fine Arts from 1987 to 1991. Subsequently he apprenticed with his elder brother Gopi in Kochi, for a year and a half. In 1993, at age twenty-four, he moved to MAA Bozell, New Delhi as a visualizer . The move also marked the beginning of his obsession with cinema and music- he managed to watch almost every concert free, in the Delhi 'art circuit'. In 1995 Prasad joined Contract Advertising as an Art Director. He discovered Federico Fellini the same year, a huge inspiration in later years. In 2000 Prasad moved to Ogilvy & Mather. While at O&M, he bought a video camera and started making low budget ad films and occasional documentary. He won a few awards for his efforts the same year, at the London International Awards, New York Festivals and Asia Pacific Awards. In 2003 he moved to Saatchi & Saatchi and focused on film and won a Cannes Lions for direction an ad film for Sony Handycams.

In 2004, Prasad Raghavan resigned from Saatchi & Saatchi to start a film club A:DOOR "the world best movies free". This move marked a new beginning- designing posters based on his interpretations. The posters have won awards in Cannes and British Design and Art Direction (D&AD), and have recently exhibited at the Museum Gallery, Mumbai (curated by Bose Krishnamachari and presented by Guild Art Gallery).
