Interview with Rucha Ghadge

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I have been into art since childhood and wanted to pursue fine arts after my schooling. One of my friends told me about design as a career and made me more aware about the various design schools I could apply to. After that, I got into MIT Institute of Design.
What is "design" for you?
Design for me has always been about connecting with your audience. That one connection can and has made powerful impact on societies.
What kinds of works do you like designing most?
ight now, as a student I’m constantly learning about different opportunities in the field. I would like to explore design interventions in social issues in the future as that is something that I am yet to touch properly.
What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
My postcard series – The Sisterhood Archives, has resonated with a lot of people and even if it does lack a little polish in terms of execution, people have still received it amazingly well. It honestly surprised me – the amount of attention it got.
When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
Zine Show by India Studio and Far Side Collective at TIFA Pune was my last exhibition as a part of a group.
Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
I live in India and have lived in three cities till date - Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore. My culture definitely impacts my visuals yes. The influence is really strong.
How can people contact you?
People can email me at ruchaghadge234@gmail.com for any work related enquiries.

Extended Interview with Rucha Ghadge

Could you please tell us about your experience as a designer, artist, architect or creator?
I am currently a third-year Graphic Design student at MIT Institute of Design, Pune, Maharashtra. I have been into art from a young age and originally wanted to pursue Fine Arts. A friend told me about Design education and after some intense research and some thorough convincing, I applied to and got into my current institute.
How did you become a designer?
I have always had a passion for art and design gives me the opportunity to create works that can impact a multitude of people. I believe design has the power to create and dissolve communities and its quite incredible the innovations that people have come up with. To be a part of that, is what really drives me.
What are your priorities, technique and style when designing?
Chose to. India does not really have much of an exposure when it comes to design. Plus, the mindset of the people is to prefer science and related fields rather than arts so it took a bit of convincing for my parents to let me go into design but after that they have been nothing but supportive.
Which emotions do you feel when designing?
Right now, as a student I’m constantly learning about different opportunities in the field. I would like to explore design interventions in social issues in the future as that is something that I am yet to touch properly.
What particular aspects of your background shaped you as a designer?
Keep exploring and building up their skillset. Always look for new opportunities and be dedicated.
What is your growth path? What are your future plans? What is your dream design project?
Skills will come, the ability to innovate and come up with fascinating concepts is what makes it.
What are your advices to designers who are at the beginning of their career?
On the impact it creates. That is of course dependent on multitude of things – the thought, implementation, magnitude, current mindset and a lot of other things. So many times, we have seen things that have become cultural icons without it meaning to, just because it resonated amongst so many people. Now creating that level intentionally is insane work.
You are truly successful as a designer, what do you suggest to fellow designers, artists and architects?
Design Interventions have the power to build, save, destroy, reimagine do whatever you want with people. We’ve seen effects both good and bad that smart design can do. So it’s important to invest in a tool that can help shape our communities better.
What is your day to day look like?
Would love to design for Sagmeister and Walsh, NY if I ever get the opportunity to.
How do you keep up with latest design trends? To what extent do design trends matter?
3d work and motion graphics. Till recently, I didn’t have the necessary requirements to successfully learn 3d work but I hope to start learning soon enough!
How do you know if a product or project is well designed? How do you define good design?
Do what you believe in. If you work on something that you truly feel passionate about then it is bound to be one of the best.
What is your biggest design work?
Sagmeister & Walsh – Frooti and frooti fizz campaigns. The eclectic campaign somehow breathes a fresh air into Frooti while maintaining a relation to all of its variety of fanbase. The Maneki Neko Collection – Misha Petrick and Numerous studios. This is just an example of amazing collaborations and pure talent.
Who is your favourite designer?
My postcard series – The Sisterhood Archives, has resonated with a lot of people and even if it does lack a little polish in terms of execution, people have still received it amazingly well. It honestly surprised me – the amount of attention it got.
Would you tell us a bit about your lifestyle and culture?
I think it matters if you are dedicated or not. I’ve seen some really underperforming students push themselves to be great and some really talented ones waste away. If the inner drive isn’t there then it doesn’t matter how good you are.
Would you tell us more about your work culture and business philosophy?
I would have probably gone into either fine arts or commercial arts. If not, then writing or journalism.
What are your philanthropic contributions to society as a designer, artist and architect?
I define it as a medium to give back to the world. Something that can empower people and enable solutions.
What positive experiences you had when you attend the A’ Design Award?
My family has been the quite supportive in my pursuit of design. My parents and my sister have always encouraged me to explore more avenues. My mentor Sunita Ma’am, really helped bring about a discipline in me. She also helped me train for design entrances. My college professors have also provided me with a lot of guidance.
