Asha Mody

San Diego, CA, USA
Born in India I was exposed at an early age to a rich culture that enveloped my senses. The eclectic mélange of ethnic groups, blending of delicate aromas and multidimensional diversity of the place is exhilarating. In India, every household has its own signature blend of spices that make up their own unique curry powder. Knowing your ingredients helps you find the blend that is perfect for you. Blending your own gives you fresher spices that you can tailor to your preferences creating luxurious and exotic aromas. I see this process as a metaphor for my own experiences in design, mixing typography, patterns, colors and textures. I have learned to follow this recipe of coalescence guided by my intuition and experience.
