About the speaker
Mira Felicia Malhotra is a visual artist, illustrator and graphic designer from Mumbai. She enjoys being endlessly challenged by image-making problems, especially when they support alternative narratives, using a wide range of techniques to find engaging accessible visual solutions. Her broader interest in DIY cultures: south asian politics, feminisms, subcultures, publishing, collectives and independent music inform her work and ethic. Her style is characterised by her offbeat humour, objects around her, an unabashed love for colour, and is balanced by her involvement in real, pressing issues within gender and mental health facing the Indian subcontinent today.
Mira was trained in a BFA in Illustration at Mumbai University before she graduated with a Master’s in Graphic Design at National Institute of Design (Ahmedabad). She currently runs her own award-winning boutique design firm Studio Kohl (Mumbai) and is a founding member of Kadak, a global collective of south asian women graphic artists. She has worked with Facebook India, Grazia India, Penguin Random House India, Oxfam International, Snapchat, British Council India and Sony Music amongst others. She has been featured by Instagram (@design), AIGA’s Eye on Design, Vh1, Redbull and her work has appeared in group shows in London (Bold, Richmix Cultural Foundation and Alchemy, Southbank Centre) as well as in Italy (New India Designscape, La Triennale Di Milano).
école intuit.lab is a design and visual communication French school cofounded in 2001 by Patrick Felices along with Clement Derock and Frederic Lalande.
The aim of the institute has been to produce high quality professionals whose profiles meet the specific needs of the graphic design and visual communication sectors in India, France and across the world. With the newly begun institute in India, the syllabus has been especially skewed to meet the professional demands of the visual communications industry in India and to tap the potential that design holds in the country.
