Hi! I’m Javeria, a graphic designer from CalArts who is currently interning at Studio Dumbar. I'm interested in visual identity, UX, publication design, and information visualization.
I believe in the the forms and functionalities of design as significant cultural artifacts, shaping everyday life remarkably. I am curious as to how design is encountered daily: from making ones way through a new grocery store to learning about an important world event.
Each decision made by a designer is charged with implications. The designer can never be neutral, and must define their tone and direction in the conception of a project (even if the best approach runs contrary to their inclinations). To accommodate this reality, I have developed a working methodology of adapting the processes of different “characters” to suit a projects' aims. Through this, I have realized that imagination and play are unexpectedly effective tools in actualizing our tomorrows.
In addition to graphic design, I have earned minors in both social science and the humanities. This has given me the chance to reflect on various academic perspectives in relation to design in a broader context. These writings may be published online or elsewhere in the near future.
If you are interested in my work or working with me, drop me an email!
