About




Background       

Anjali Nair is a graphic designer from India, currently living in Baltimore. She is an MFA Graphic Design graduate from MICA. 

Previously, she worked in New Delhi for five years, first at a creative studio, a conservation organisation and then a newsroom. She believes visual communication can be a conversation starter and a tool to challenge the standards of normalcy.

When she’s not at work, she can be found capturing the sights and sounds around her. She loves to travel and one day hopes to have flavoured street food across the globe
(Dreams currently on hold due to an ongoing pandemic).


Currently looking for commissions and freelance opportunities. Get in touch: anair@mica.edu.
