DSI Congratulations to our Paula Rhodes Award Recipients!


Tanya Bhandari is a visual thinker from New Delhi, India. Her main interests lie in graphic design, photography, illustration and understanding people, but she believes in being a generalist, too. She is always trying to learn more about the different things design can do. As an undergrad in Graphic Design at the MIT Institute of Design, India, she spent a lot of time observing the different design disciplines being practiced around her. She also appreciates social and cultural diversity and, in her studies in New Delhi, Pune, and London, has always leaned towards community-based work. Tanya loves finding patterns in the way people interact and has worked on a range of projects from a systemic communication design perspective. She’s not afraid to roll up her sleeves, though, and also always relishes the chance to get her hands dirty with a project.
