Articles for Kyoorius Magazine
For the past few months I have been contributing to a quarterly design publication in India called Kyoorius which is an initiative by Transasia Fine Papers. Their main focus is to create awareness around design and make it a mainstream tool to empower businesses in India. Designyatra is a conference that is organized by the same people around similar principles. The two articles that I wrote for the magazine were – “What designers can learn from grassroot level creative entrepreneurs” and “Creating urban futures through tactical urbanism“. The former article focused on grass route level innovators like Arunachalam who created a sanitary napkin ecosystem for lower income women, the latter article focused on tactical urbanists like Urfun Lab who have been doing interesting work in the realm of guerrilla urban interventions. The third article is on its way for the next edition, stay tuned.
