Curriculum Vitae

Hi there! I'm Aishwarya, and a Graphic Designer and a Design Researcher rooted in communities, ethics and compassion

This website is a curation of the different work I enjoy doing. 

I AM CURRENTLY WORKING ON my graduation project on early childhood education

She believes in following a design process led by research and in-depth questions arriving at visual strategies apt for the problem at hand. At other times she's looking at the huge world, lettering one word at a time.passionate about the use of tech/data to build resilient and inclusive communities.I see the world around me in systems, but more so in stories and human connections.

I love to tell stories, meet new people and once in a while, travel to places where I don't see them at all. As a designer, I believe that one can never work in isolation. I have collaborated with children, psychologists, doctors as well as my family and friends on a variety of interesting projects. I tend to inject my characteristic joviality into these complex systems. I believe design has the power to change the way people think and feel and I wish to do work that harnesses this power for good. 

When not working, I spend my weekends illustrating. Inspired by the picture books I read and collect, I wish to write one someday!

Hello! I am Aishwarya Jare, a designer and researcher from Pune, India. I will be graduating from MIT, Institute of design in June 2020.


I am currently working on my graduation project on Early Childhood Education. I follow a design process led by research and in-depth questions to arrive at strategies apt for a problem at hand. I see the world around me in systems, but I perceive them as interlinked stories and human connections. With love for problem-solving, I am seeking to create a meaningful impact on society. 

As a designer, I believe that one can never work in isolation. Thus in my projects, I involve professionals that tackle aspects of a problem from a different perspective- right from programmers, children to environmentalists. I recently also started studying psychology with an emphasis on social psychology because to design for the people around me, I need to understand them first. 

I spend my time watching people. I draw them, the way they are, the way some people want to be and sometimes I have interesting conversations with them.

I hold that building the apt education system would be the first step towards a better society. And I want to be a part of this change. I incline to teach and am a volunteer at the Times of India's NIE student program which organises workshops about topics such as gender equality, fake news and fact-checking, sustainability, etc, in schools all across India.

When not working, I spend my time reading, watching a crime drama, playing a sport or illustrating.
