Designing with type is an exacting yet beautiful art. Typography imparts a visual play of structural integrity mixed with a dynamic interaction between space and counter-space. It gives us great pleasure to introduce an exciting young practitioner of the typographic arts...
Akila Seshasayee is an independent graphic designer working in New Delhi, India.
"Before this, I worked for various organizations, mostly in newspaper and
magazine design, but with some television experience thrown in as well."
Indeed, when the design has a love and respect for good typography, it is easily evident.
Four of these samples were created for a monthly journal called Seminar. Each issue carries a serious theme, so Akila had to design accordingly. publication, and covers a particular theme every issue. Akila comments:
The fifth sample is a poster
for an international conference and exhibition
for the beauty industry, which was be held in 2001 in New Delhi. Akila designed the logo, and all related print materials.
We appreciate this brief glimpse at Akila's art. Unfortunately shortly after this interview, we were no longer able to reach her at the only email address we had. Somehow she simply slipped out of sight. Hopefully she'll visit again and get back in touch.
