We continue with the theme of the 10th Anniversary Edition of Designyatra, in the blood Red Kyoorius Magazine 27.
What pumps your heart? We explore the individual journeys of varied people from the world of design, entertainment, entrepreneurship, architecture and photography and ask them the simple question, discovering the seeds of their motivation in turn.
In this issue, we also continue with the 2-part series on movie posters, this time bringing out the quirk and creativity in alternative posters and those made for independent cinema. We travel through the dusty, nostalgic BEST Museum, peering at the collections of old employees wide-eyed; and spend A Day in a Printing Press witnessing stories being stitched together.
While Neeta Premchand talks us through the history of handmade paper all the way from Daulatabad, Neelakash Kshetrimayum tries to revive Bengali through his digital fonts. Sunit Singh, SVP of Product Design at Ola, and Jay Dutta, Head of UX at Flipkart tell us more about the industry that intrigues us so – the making of Indian-made apps.
What does creative sustenance truly mean? Is it not the ability to sustain one’s work financially as well and not just make pretty objects? We answer some such questions in The Business of Design. Mohor Ray furthers the argument with her discourse of mainstream work vs. self-initiated work; finishing with a lovely personal letter from Michael Wolff, which builds on his series on service design and the lengths that creatives must go to, to fulfill their customers.
