What’s inside Kyoorius 23

by Amishi Parekh

With our first issue of 2015, we’ve explored a simple yet complex question – What does design mean to you?

For Neeraj Kakkar, co-founder of Paper Boat, it is the essence of the company he’s helped create – from the product to the brand and packaging, to the way the company itself is run. For online furniture sites such as Pepperfry and Urban Ladder, it is the driver behind a shift in their customers’ buying behavior who are increasingly looking for well-made and designed pieces to decorate their homes. For Daniel Jackson of Cord Worldwide, with whom we had a long chat about music, Pavlovian responses and the fake sound of money in ATM machines, it is creating emotional connections with sound.


In the Special Report, we attempt to understand design across geographies, speaking to creatives in Brazil, Mexico, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand and Taiwan, searching for parallels and contradictions across these diverse places.

There is a growing interest in the role design can play in effecting change and improving the lives of people from all levels of society. Harsh Purohit of Cognito explains the misunderstood concept of sustainability as applied in Corporate India; on the flip side, we spoke with Nawneet Rajan, who through Technovation in Dharavi, uses technology to empower young girls and women in underprivileged areas.

To close out the issue, our columnists Mohor Ray (Codesign), Christina Andersson (Hyper Island) and Michael Wolff touch on different issues affecting designers today – from working in a studio environment to adapting to digital, to understanding Money.

We hope this issue sparks off many new ideas and conversations. Here’s to an exciting year ahead!долг в онлайн деньгикак взломать вай фай сеть соседаскачать бесплатно программу sncrackкак взломать вай фай соседа через телефонпрограмма для накрутки подписчиков в инстаграме бесплатнопрограммы для взлома wifi на айфон
