Principal designer and founder of Mumbai-based Rabia Gupta Designs, one of India’s leading strategic design companies, Rabia Gupta talks to POOL about a journey that started with studying graphic design at the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad more than 20 years ago.
Whilst I may have been practicing design for almost two decades, I would say that the industry has only just started emerging as a whole, – shares Rabia. Whilst the landscape has changed considerably within the industry – there are many more design professionals out there, so much more chatter about design, and lots of passion and intent – I still feel we are a disorganized group of individuals pulling in different directions.
“My reasons for setting up RGD were very simple – to provide pathbreaking contextual design solutions, and so as long as I can keep doing that, and keep designing and creating, I am happy.” – she explains. “I would like to keep up our best practices, keep up our end product and keep pushing the envelope towards creating design that makes India proud.”
