Patrick Whitney in conversation with Sam Pitroda | Understanding Design

A book presenting an extended dialogue between two design practitioners on different aspects of design.


This is a book design project where the brief was to design a simple book for students. I assisted Dr. Nina Sabnani with the layout and visual design. Patrick Whitney and Sam Pitroda have a conversation with each other about different aspects of design. The brief was to design a simple and clean layout for the book incorporating Sam Pitroda’s illustrations. The book is now available in academic spaces in India and USA.


Two examples of Sam Pitroda's illustrations.
