Tutoring the next generation...

An exciting new addition to Nanda's career is that she has started tutoring the next generation of  Diploma of Interior Design students at Ara Institute of Canterbury! Study involves residential interior design, colour theory, kitchen and bathroom design, and historical restoration, with Nanda sharing her own expertise and networks with her students.

Ara (formally Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology) opened their brand new building Kahukura two months ago. This beautiful building now houses Engineering and Architectural studies.

I’m an all-round visual communicator who finds people fascinating. I believe user-centric design is invaluable, and love the insights. I aim to move into service/experience design. I aspire to be in environments that change peoples lives positively – through transformative experiences, inspirational beautiful things, projects for public good, or creativity that entertains and engages attention. I’m slightly obsessed with anything travel related, and love sharing Wellington on a good day with great people.
