Ragini Siruguri is a visual communication designer from south India. Her practice lies at the intersection of graphic design, photography, books and writing and is guided by a belief that any form of design is inseparable from the cultural and political context it is created within.
At present, Ragini designs books with Tara Books, an independent publishing collective renowned for experiments in the art of book-making. Outside of this, she has developed an online workshop on graphic design in the Indian context with Ownpath, an education platform for designers. A chance encounter with Bangkok-based designer and photographer Wuthipol Ujathammarat led to a collaboration called Urban Coincidence, a project that explores visual similarities between India and Thailand through photographs by the two designers.
