Batul Bahrainwala is a designer and illustrator completing her BFA. Her mission is to use design to create a positive impact by helping people tell their stories in a memorable way. She uses an experimental approach to explore the world of both analog and digital but has recently found excitement in combining both of them together. Batul is also interested in finding how design can impact the environment. She is researching ways to use graphic design to create sustainable solutions to environmental problems. When Batul is not designing, you will find her at a donut shop or wandering in nature.
