design, diversity, decolonisation


I’m Anoushka, a graphic designer, illustrator and writer practicing in London. I recently graduated from Central Saint Martins with a BA in Graphic Design, having completed an exchange programme with School of Visual Arts in New York and completed my Foundation year in Brighton.

I’m passionate about pursuing diversity in the creative industry through empowering minorities, as well as decolonising our way of thinking about design. Combining this interest with vibrant visual languages and a love for human centred design results in a practice that manifests through many different mediums.

I run a group for women and non binary people of colour in the creative industries, which you can find here
I’m part of the Corrrective Collective, as well as Head of Content for Left From Centre.

If you’d like to hire me for freelance work, are interested in collaborating or just want to grab a coffee, please email me at, or DM me on instagram: @anoushkakhandwala
