    Design Researcher & StorytellerFuture Factory
     - Mumbai, IndiaFull Time
    Future Factory is a design and innovation firm - my design process begins and ends with storytelling. I strongly believe Visualising the Design Strategy in the right way can help ideas stick, and move people to action, both within the firm and out in the real world. I help the firm to grow insights in an empathetic way from design research. Worked with the design team to create tangible design solutions and inform prototype development.

    Conducting a 3 day workshop spread across 2 weeks for 10th grade Design Technology students. Testing the brief that i had designed and facilitating to get the students involved in re-purpose plastic bags. This is to Encouraging young people to reduce, re-use and recycle materials as it is a direct solution to waste management. The students would take the approach of learning through making to have a better understanding of the concept of recycling and up-cycling. This will make them start questioning the world of stuff and consumption itself. The reading references will guide them to better understand and analyse the realm of sustainability in relation to design. This project will influence the students to start supporting the need for a more sustainable society.
