Bindi Formations II

Usha (उषा) means the first ray of light from the rising sun.


And that's the arm of Kriti Monga from Tumeric Design –

a typographic doyenne – who wears it on her sleeve.


From my recent Typocentric: Bazaar workshop at the UnBox Festival in Delhi. Hosted with Abishek Ghate and Rajesh Dahiya of Co-Design. We had global participants construct typographic forms from objects commonly found in Indian markets – buttons, bindis, decorative mirrors, candles, textile embellishments, match-boxes, etc. Much fun on a crazy tight time-frame.
