Our founder realized that —
Design, in India, is a minority.
Women in Design, is an even smaller minority.
Despite being embedded into the core of India, art & design are still undervalued. Women in Design, India, didn't start out as just another fight against patriarchy, or another community web-page that would 'support creatives' by only highlighting those with say, 100k followers. It wasn't something that resulted from a sudden realization. Rather, it evolved from recurring unspoken, shared experiences that cumulated to create the strong and continuously growing community that it is today.
We are a female led and initiated community — A representation of women creatives from all over India. A platform celebrating female designers in India.
A majority of design
graduates are women.
Only a minority of
design leaders are
We’re here to show the next generation of female creatives that there’s so much to look forward to.
Founder — Women in Design, India.
"Despite living in twentieth century India, Design was a minority, and women in design, was an even smaller minority — I wanted to do something to change that, to be the push that progresses us to where we need to be in order to fully flourish and thrive as a country and community."
Wanting to be more than just an industrial product and UI/UX designer; Dhruti has always dreamt about starting something of her own. Her passion to create progressive, forward-thinking solutions that resonate with people in their daily lives led her to found Women in Design, India in 2019 alongside her good friend and ex-cofounder, Ashwini Muralikumar (2019 - 2022).
Channeling a fusion of her beliefs around design and psychology to nature, community, and life as a whole — Women in Design, India was the one-stop solution for Indian creatives around the world with a united vision; Celebrating the next generation of visionaries and tuning progressive growth.
