ABOUT NEHA BAHUGUNA
Neha primarily believe that she is a communication designer. Stories and folk lores are something she grew up with in the Himalayan towns. She has designed a font called Kunkun devnagari, which is widely used as a display font by brands like Airtel. While working on that project she realized the love for Hindi and since then she has been using this language and design thinking to tell stories, write screenplays, recite poems, create content for children. In the process, reaching to a huge mass of Indian people who relate to her, not as a designer but as a storyteller. Currently working on a feature film project for Zee studio.
