About me

I run a small independent design studio in Melbourne, Australia.

I design

  • Books
  • Websites
  • Identities
  • Communication material
  • Objects & Products

I also like to explore illustration, both manual and digital.

Before 2003, I ran the studio in New Delhi, India. Most of my work in India was in the realm of Academic publications, working with 4 NGO’s: The Barefoot College, Tilonia, Rajasthan,  PRADAN, The Hunger Project, and The Centre for Women’s Development Studies, all based in New Delhi.

I have an independent ‘Making Practice‘ that includes book-binding, Micro-model-furniture, Pin-hole camera making & photography, sewing and papercutting.

I teach in the Industrial Design Program at RMIT University Melbourne where I am also doing my PhD in the school of Media and Communication. I have developed and run First year studio courses, instructional courses on rendering in Illustrator and Photoshop, Conceptual Diagramming as well as Methods courses. I also supervise fourth year honours students in heir final year-long projects. Besides this, I extend my own practice into teaching studios and studies courses that are based around my own thinking and research.
