About




Background       

Anjali Nair is an Editorial Designer at MSNBC + NBC News. She is an MFA Graphic Design graduate from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). 

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).
