I'm Sandhya, a recent graduate and proud alumnus of the Visual Communication Design Program at The Ohio State University. As a result of my training in design, I'm well-versed in the topics of graphic design, design research, user-centered design, interaction design, user experience design, motion graphics, branding and identity design, data visualization, and photography. Presently, I work as a Graphic Designer for The Ohio State University College of Nursing, where I design solutions for use across all marketing campaigns, presentations, print collateral, web and social graphics, infographics, direct mail, email, and environmental signage/displays.

Before starting entering the field of design, I got my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology (Pre-Medicine) and worked as a Translational Research Assistant at the Center for Injury Research Policy of The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital. In this position, I helped to "translate" injury research into educational materials such as fact sheets and informational videos, as well as promotional materials including press releases and social media posts

It was while working to translate scientific information and communicating research that I was able to gain insight into the power that visual communication has on public health. I realized that with the proper tools and a strong foundation in visual communication design, I can help disseminate relevant information and have a considerable impact on society. That's how I became passionate about visual communication and health education. If you want to learn more about what I do and how we can collaborate, feel free to contact me via email through sandhyaelango@gmail.com or connect with me on LinkedIn.
