DESIGNER PROFILE

 

ANITA MODHA

Anita came late to design after having spent much of her youth with lab rats while completing a psychology degree. The degree ended being an important asset as it provided a unique perspective on human emotion, ergonomics and how to translate this understanding into strong emotive design work.

What is one word that describes your artist style?
All-over-the-map (thats one word right?)

 

How did you get started working with Rollout?
Well, I started the company - all by happenstance. We were given a large format printer to start a business around. We tested out papers and inks and applications and finally found a medium that we loved to work with and a gap in the market.

What resources do you use for creating your work?
I like taking 2 seemingly unrelated objects/words and see how they can fit together visually or inventions in one field and see how it could be appropriated in another field.
Walking around or traveling and reading books are always good.
Getting feedback and collaborating are also great resources.

 

Can you share any of your secret tips?
Here are 2:
1. Read as much as you can, it never gets old and gives you a world of ideas, or lets you escape.
2. Keep a note book or sketch book beside your bed.

 

What did your parents want you to be instead of a designer?
Doctor, lawyer, dentist, accountant, computer scientist…
