Shashwati has several years of experience as a communication design professional, primarily in the development sector. Her main interest has been to explore the role that design can play in the outreach and communication efforts of small and medium-sized social organisations. Her motivation to choose this focus was to do work that is creatively challenging and fulfilling at the same time. This interest has taken her on many interesting journeys with work touching themes as diverse as urban composting, rainwater harvesting, equitable tourism, farmers’ organisations and more.
As an individual, Shashwati is inspired by many things – philosophy, art, music, nature, people and the city. Artistic exploration is something that she seeks to keep alive in herself. Her quest is to integrate all the different aspects of her life into a meaningful and cohesive whole.
