Entry Description

I choose to design three fiction works by my favourite author Haruki Murakami that have a similar recurrent themes of alienation and loneliness. Narrated under the backdrop of Japanese social and political conditions, all the three stories share a tone surreal and melancholy weaved into narratives.

About Designer

I am a full-time MFA graphic design student at Academy of Art University originally from India, and now living in San Francisco. I have a strong interest in how graphic design and design research can be used to affect change and improve the human condition. I enjoy working with color, typography, print, publication design, branding and experimenting with interactive design. Prior to deciding to switch geographies and pursuing a Master's degree, I did art direction, working for ad agencies like Ogilvy in India. Besides being an aspiring graphic designer I am a mother of a four-year-old. I enjoy laughing at the silly antics of my son and dream about a brighter, better-designed future.
