ABOUT ANUSHA

After graduating in Communication Design from National Institute of Design, India in 1997, I steered my career on a cross-disciplinary trajectory and found a deeply satisfying destiny in editorial design, experimental photography/portraiture, and as a Family Legacy design advisor. In hindsight, the unique path was no surprise, for I was brought up in a family that had moved around (UK, USA, and India) and thrived on cultural, historical and intellectual curiosities.
 
Over the last 25 years, I have worked with India’s foremost corporate houses, cultural institutions, artists, and galleries – collaborations that have manifested into a design folio of lucrative marketing campaigns, branding folios, and artistic books. I now love to work only on books and innovative publications. As a practicing photographer, I create my own artworks on subjects of great interest and curiosity to me, and on commissions for national and international clients.
 
In 2010, a deep curiosity for hidden histories, and the combined experience of storytelling through editorial design and photography led to creation of a photographic-narrative based archive titled Indian Memory Project. When word on the project, and its pioneering concept spread far and wide, I found myself in a fortunate position as a legacy and estate design advisor to families and institutions, creating bespoke (and bilingual) family and family brand histories, in both tactile and digital formats (i.e books, family trees, online archives, and offline exhibitions).
 

Over 25 years, I have presented my artworks, and cross-disciplinary practice on esteemed panels and in publications, at universities, museums, art exhibitions and cultural institutions around the world. I have also been granted a few formal accolades from the International Design Award for Human Intelligence (China), Prix Ars Electronica (Europe),  L’oreal Paris Femina Women Achiever, and Innovator of the Year by India Today Women’s Summit. I live and work in Mumbai, India, and intermittently in the UK and USA.
