Creating Change: Design Writings from India

Creating Change: Design Writings from India is an effort by British Council and Kyoorius to support and generate more awareness about design writing. The book, which was released at the Kyoorius Design Yatra this year,  features twelve essays by designers, architects and writers, discussing design and its possibilities in India. Shreyas, from our studio, was one of the contributing writers. 

Check out her essay on design writing in India, and other essays here.
