We believe purposeful design
can address systemic problems
and improve lives.
upaai was founded by three young communication designers—Ridhima Bhutani, Vedika Kasat,
Antara Madavane—with a common desire to create such impact in the fields of healthcare and education in India.
Typically found untangling information on meticulous Google Spreadsheets, Ridhima derives meaning and devises systems. Upaai's in-house administrator brings much-needed balance to both projects and play.
Vedika is the team's unofficial hiring manager, eternal optimist, and foremost authority on the intricacies of Adobe Illustrator. She transforms preliminary concepts into joyous visuals and fleeting ideas into innovative upaai.
With colour-coded Keep lists and the memory of an elephant, Antara manages Upaai's daily operations. The resident writer loves playing with data and usually leaves the team baffled by her unique observation skills.
