Illustrator and visual designer Kabini Amin doesn’t like to be pinned down, either geographically or creatively.
She went from a degree in Animation Film Design to working as a graphic designer and then illustrator, to trying to position herself more as an auteur-illustrator, who now is attempting to cross pollinate processes of design with own ideas of ecology, conservation and learning.

“Professionally, my journey began with editorial illustrations for Current Conservation magazine,- Kabini says, – but from there grew to working with their parent organization, Dakshin Foundation. I have also done work in varying capacities for animal rescue NGOs, artisanal-eco friendly products, ecologically-conscious housing and activist/conservationist endeavors. I was an in-house designer with Design Brew in Bangalore when they were designing the visuals for Nandan Nilekani’s election campaign.”

Travel is one thing that keeps her grounded:

“A trip to the countryside can often be enough to restore faith in beauty as well as put me face to face with harsher truths. It helps me cultivate a sense of self reliance and confidence. Conscious travel is one of the ways that help prevent stagnation. Travel can also be a bottomless bowl of sensory inspiration! There’s so many things to see, smell, touch, taste, and hear that one can rarely run out of ideas.”
