श्रुति // shruti - that which is heard
I am Shruti, a design researcher in training with a background in communication design. Currently pursuing my Masters in Design at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, Canada. My research is located in the borders between child protection and womens rights- addressing specifically the Indian context.
I have over 5 years of experience as a designer and have specialised in branding/identity, publications, illustration and recently web and app design as well. Between 2007 and 2011 I was involved with a theatre company as a designer and a performer and was lucky to be part of a team that conceptualised over 100 events from stage productions, poetry readings and book launches to children’s theatre training and workshops.
My journey as a performing artist has been instrumental in defining the scope and focus of my work. I feed this emotion into my practice and hope to be a designer that advocates for the welfare of children, women and marginalised groups world over.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope we can work together sometime.
