SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS
I’m Panini, and no, I was not named after a sandwich. I am an international student from India and am a Junior at School of Visual Arts in NYC, currently pursuing Graphic Design. My main area of focus is Interaction Design and Typography. My passion lies in designing systems (UI/UX and Branding) and with each new project, I try to push my creative and visual ideas as far as I can while maintaining the functionality of my designs. I like dogs, acai bowls and Spotify’s discover weekly playlist.
