about

Designed the serif typeface called Fragile. The entire set took about 2 months. At 10 hours a day, that adds up to about 34,560 minutes!

Grew up eating mangoes in the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Mumbai, teeming with 19 million people.

An ardent student of Kathak, a 2000 year old classical North-Indian dance with complex rhythms, percussion, mathematics, and storytelling.

The number of years she has been driving. Zero intention to change this!

this art at the mfa spoke to me at this particular visit. my life right now is just like this. diverging and converging million ideas, broadening perspectives, narrowing options. zeroing in on my goals as a designer, mother, wife, daughter. so many hues, so many shades, so many roles. it’s beautiful! @mfaboston . . . . .

it was really funny to see that no matter if you are pentagram or a junior designer, you would still face the same challenge putting the letterforms ‘ICA’ next to each other! ICA’s new visual brand identity by abbot miller of pentagram. an insightful presentation about the process, the challenges and experiments that led to the current stencil typeface and the rational behind c’. i will definitely miss the red bold identity but the new identity is far more sensitive and applicable. @icaboston @pentagramdesign . . . . .

summer vibes in the city. dare i say MY city?! the fantasy of starting over in a new city is thrilling especially when boston is buried under snow. now that summer is here, boston gives me the ‘new’ city feel. hidden corners to explore, new bakery to try out, drinks by the pier. but it’s also a city where i’ve lived for 15 years. when does it become home? will it ever? @icaboston . . . . . #

I daydream of a life as a nomad. hopping around the world, prying into people’s life from different cultures and experiencing this infinite beauty. but the realities keep me grounded (or the lack of guts to actually do it). so on my getaway trips, i plan to an extent but also leave a healthy amount to chance and discovery. like example - when we came across this bakery in reykjavik at 7am. we weren’t even so hungry but the smell and sight of bakers freshly baking the bread, we were there, trying it all! best find ever with @luzfelicha . . . . . 🇮🇸 ík

when i experience the old world like this impressive Alhambra Palace, i’m left with a sense of loss and major FOMO. i want modernity, access, equality but the charm and charisma of the bygone era. Why don’t we ever slow down and build things like they used to. . . . . ña
