Really happy to have attended the India Design ID in Delhi last week. Though every collection/company doesn’t wow you – there is plenty of good work there. Here are a few glimpses of things I loved.

You know the kind of music you’ll have to change your plans for. Like you had a plan, but the music is so good you just can’t leave. Fact two: The most fun times I’ve ever had dancing ALL night were at house parties (as in – in a house) or inĀ  TC ( teenage) but the best in Italy & Spain, specifically in underground sub cultured basements lit with neon lights or in no stress Gay Bars. So if you’re out or in, its good to dance either way. Also, this doesn’t mean everyone in Gay Bars is gay. Not True. It’s just the most fun & unpretentious atmosphere you can find and people are there to go bonkers. So here’s a plan for this Saturday if you wanna dance.

My first assignment of this year was a book by Arathi Menon. I just got to see it fresh from the press! Written with good humour and insight, this book speaks about a woman’s journey through the end of a marriage and her route to getting back to being the person she was. I had a good time creating this with constructive feedback from the author and the Pan Macmillan team. Below is a quick look-through of the cover design’s process. cover_Leaving home_SamiaSingh back_leavinghome_SamiaSinghin the shelf3LeavingHomeWithHalfAFridge_SamiaSingh
