Keerthi is a set and costume designer for film and theatre. Keerthi’s passion for honest storytelling and creating emotive experiences led her to designing for the performing arts. She started photography at a very young age as a form of self-expression and developed a keen eye for the visual arts. Prior to NIDA she took a gap year where she spent her time travelling and exploring design for fashion. She is extremely curious and passionate about theatre, film and the performing arts.
Her goal is to create honest visual stories that encompass poetic and emotive design and create a space for
performers, creatives and audiences to express ourselves.
Keerthi has worked on theatre shows including Love and Money and Fraternal in 2017, designed for a collaborative short film called Alienated and most recently designed a music video for Blue Velvet as part of triple j Unearthed in 2019. In her final year, she attended the Venice Biennale and the Prague Quadrennial which reaffirmed her love of design and the arts.
