Having done 3 years of undergraduate study in Political Science, Smrita chose a career where her inner passion of drawing and creative thinking came together in one profession—Design. Smrita completed her second undergrad - B.A. in Graphic Design from Apeejay Institute of Design, New Delhi, India. Along with her studies, she worked with an advertising and design agency in New Delhi for a year. Inspired by her father’s lessons “Keep learning and never stop” she joined Pratt Institute, New York for pursuing MS in Communications Design and Photography. During her years in Pratt, she worked with many design professionals in New York and gained experience in typography, environmental signage and branding. She is a multi-faceted artist and her work includes photography, painting, and writing.
