What’s inside Kyoorius 28

The rainbow-foiled Kyoorius 28, the last issue for year 2015, is out! And it makes the year end all happy and shiny!


When that newspaper that you gorge on every morning, reaches your doorstep, it goes through a lot: not just being passed through multiple hands of deliverers, but also through print, design and editorial teams. In Area, we look at the basics of Newspaper Design in India, from the eyes of Andy Naorem, Aurobind Patel and Dr. Mario Garcia.


This time, we draw some inspiration from Kyoorius’ events and programmes, starting with #kdy15. We interview Tnop Wangsillapakun of Thailand in My Life in Design, and find out what prompted Autowale: Mukesh Jha and Janardan Prasad to make this dial-a-rickshaw app up and running. In Special Report, we observe how Play is Hard Work, as some of the speakers spoke about Play, and list some important takeaways from KDY15.


In Output, we picked out some visually impactful and impressive, new work that we saw at the Kyoorius Awards, from some young firms that deserve a mention thanks to their delightful work in a feature on 2015 Kyoorius Awards Picks – featuring Kahani Designworks‘ design for the book Smirit: Art for Piramal Foundation, Sisterconcern Design Studio‘s stationary and branding for their own startup, Design Stack‘s design for the book From Darkness into Light and Landor Mumbai’s packaging design for Miss Chhotee’s.



We also put together a feature on some Wedding Invitation Designers gearing up for the wedding shenanigans that are going to hit us as soon as 2016 does.

From the Delhi Photo Festival 2015, an initiative of the Nazar Foundation, we travel back to the workshop of Pritesh Shah in Mumbai, whose laser cutting workshop Aptech has made some intricate designs come to life; and then fly on to Pepper House in Fort Kochi, conceived as a platform to promote and display Art.


If you happen to be in Bandra lately, we warrant a visit to the Brooke Bond Taj Mahal Tea House. What makes Taj Mahal one of India’s favourite teas? – We find out in Origins. Michael Wolff shares with us 6 books that have influenced and delighted him while Laura Jordan Bambach, one of the moderators at the recent most Designyatra, tells why India inspires, enthuses and rejuvenates her, and shares the dream of a modern Indian graphic design.

Grab the latest copy of the issue now. Happy reading!

And Happy 2016…
