My name is Deepti Kundra, a true Indian by origin and a global citizen otherwise. I have 4 years of work experience in Broadcast Media, Retail, Graphic Design and also spent some time exploring filmmaking and my love for photography. I am presently pursuing my M.F.A. in Design Management at Savannah College of Art & Design, Savannah, GA.
This blog is dedicated to investigating the future of "Glocalization" which is blurring the boundaries between globalization and localization of design. I will embark on a journey to unpack local to its bare bones only to reconstruct a framework and ranking of the various local aspects. (Like local food, local fashion, local travel, local art, local creative businesses etc.) through an ethnographic study. I will apply these insights to "reframe" local to construct design thinking models for creative design processes for developed and emerging markets. I also intend to through this thesis, gather systemic ways to forecast Local trends for Glocal contexts using Local collaborative and interactive participatory exhibit(s).
In short this space will be a melting pot of my learnings, insights, reflections and contemplations as I move further along in my thesis.
I will eagerly look forward to and appreciate your comments, questions and feedback.
