Senior Communication Associate/Graphic Design
My role at ICIMOD is to design general and technical publications and my work involves crafting our outward-facing communications. I coordinate with authors to understand how they want to communicate their work and handle a host of documents ranging from flyers, brochures, and concept notes to banners, nametags, and social media graphics. I also work on layouts for large technical reports.
How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
I protect the pulse of the planet by designing knowledge products with clear messages and impactful visuals. I make sure that my designs have clean flows, that my photo selections are powerful and speak volumes, and that the importance of our work in the HKH is clearly communicated through our knowledge products.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
I enjoy working in the cross-disciplinary and multi-cultural environment at ICIMOD. As a designer, I love to play around with the visual elements in our publications. I feel a great sense of ownership for each document I design and I am very honoured to be a long-serving member of the ICIMOD family.
What are you passionate about?
I love my craft and am proud to say that I am still learning and improving each day. I’m passionate about learning new things in creative fields. Photography is also an interest of mine and I love to travel to different places in the world.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in commerce from Tribhuvan University, Nepal and have attended numerous training programs related to my work including an advanced course in Linux from NIIT, Nepal and an advanced graphic design course from Pentasoft, Nepal. I also hold a certificate in information technologies from NIIT, Nepal and a diploma in computer science from Prime Computer, Nepal.
