I am an Exhibition Designer with interest in electronic and digital media. Previously I have explored various forms of design practices, through working as a designer at Glue Design Pvt. Ltd., later running my own practice by setting up Real Monkey Design Studio. Currently I teach at National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad in department of New Media and Exhibition Design. Through these experiences, I try to explore concerns of design, designer and design practice.
I have worked for design of retail spaces, trade-show pavilions, thematic exhibitions, orientation centers, identities, printed promotional material, environmental graphics, way-finding, websites, interactive installations, and audio visual presentations. On every project I essentially try to experiment and develop design processes that allow me to apply myself to a larger domain of design instead of confining myself to any single specialisation.
In time to come, I want to practice a mix of many activities that inform each other - body of work- lateral connections between mediums and forms - business practices and cultural implications - capture changes - thus articulate a broader, contemporary context relevant to emerging histories - I want to make sculptures / new media productions that are informed in my understanding of the media / architecture / environment we live in and understand this environment through my personal, professional and academic work.
