Hello and Welcome!

I’m Shiba, I design tangible and intangible things. My training and practice in design began almost ten years ago in Communication Design. Over the years, design has remained a constant as my understanding of its reach across products, services and systems evolved. I currently work for Google, London.

I design because I care about people, mundane routines and the world we live in. I’m interested in exploring the identity of ‘things’ in our day-to-day and the diversity of interactions in different cultural contexts. My motivation to pursue design is in its ability to make the current state a better state, with a grumpy optimism of course!

What keeps me ticking?
A good short story, making pictures, planning travel, breakfast, yoga and infectious smiles.

"Each of us is responsible for everything
and every human being."
