Aarushi Bapna

Hello, I’m from India.  

 I am interested in a 'research through design' framework of practice with cross-discipline collaborations that respond to emerging contexts.

My work currently tends to communicate  challenges+issues through critique, research and systemic approaches to design.[esp. visual design]


As a recent graduate, I have quixotic instincts to practice design for good. However, I am conscious about its limitations, but never hesitate to explore its possibilities.
