Hello! My name is Saumya, and I am…

a graduate student in the first year of the MDes program at CMU.

a graphic designer, by education and experience. I earned a B.Des. in Communication Design from the National Institute of Fashion Technology in New Delhi, India. After graduating, I worked with a local studio for close to two years, where I was involved largely in publication and packaging design. I also worked on corporate identity projects.

a typophile — I love all things type. I enjoy observing, critiquing, and creating typography, and have recently gone back to the fundamentals by learning calligraphy and lettering.

a reader. My “favourite” book changes pretty much by the week, but give me a good murder mystery any day.

a giant nerd. I loved calculus in high school. (Really.) I read (and watch Youtube videos) about maths and physics concepts for fun, and frequently contemplate the vastness of the universe.

very passionate about food. I enjoy cooking, almost as much as I enjoy eating. I’m always looking for new recipes and restaurants to try out — suggestions are welcome!

a collector of pop culture references. I have spent (wasted? Probably) a large portion of my time watching films and TV shows. It is my biggest guilty pleasure.

a puzzle enthusiast. Whether it’s an applied maths problem (see above; “giant nerd”), a logic-driver brainteaser, or a crossword, I like solving puzzles as a stress-buster.

above all, excited to learn about interaction design, and more.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
