Made in India

MAY 2021
        A visual art book designed as an ode to the Indian culture. It examines the various vidual ephemera and objects from the culture, and abstracts them in a way that embraces its identity.

My examination of my culture was deeply rooted in research and collection. I dove deep into the print collatoral of the culture such as Bollywood, Matchboxes, and Local Signage.
The pages are designed as informative landscapes of visual storytelling that come together to form a book. I extracted symbols, historical contexts, meanings & translations for several objects of the culture to provide a richer examination.

The book is an homage to the vibrancy and visual identity of the culture through an on-going archival, and abstraction of the elements- all of which resulted in an aesthetic that is very tactile, energetic, and abstracted in itself.
