Sanjay Madnani is a Communication Strategist and Designer by profession, an Animation Film Designer, an illustrator, a cartoonist, a satirist, and a storyteller by passion.
From a cartoonist in Hindi newspapers, to a design student, to a commercial sector professional, to an educator, to a Development Communication professional, his journey has had dramatic turns. None, however, felt alien to him.
Being a development sector insider for twenty odd years, Sanjay weighs heavily on the fact that development and governance still has a enormous void to be filled by design, design thinking and design process. Focused on Communication for Development (C4D), Social and Behavioral Change Communication (SBCC), Indigenous media and new media, he has multiple crosscutting projects across the globe to his credit.
Sanjay resides in Nepal, calls India his home, then again, he travels around a lot for work.
This Trainer’s Manual on Transitional Justice was created by the International Center for Transitional Justice to support decentralization of transitional justice discussion and to strengthen civil society capacity outside Kathmandu to engage in transitional justice policy development and implementation. It intends to help participants become comfortable with, knowledgeable about, and willing to engage in transitional justice issues.
Sanjay researched and internalized the subject well enough to best suit the design of the publication to the subject. He also investigated the issues related to the actual handling of the book (cost, duration, user, environment of use, need for photocopying etc.) and designed/suggested the paper quality, printing method and the size of the book. Furthermore, it was understood that it may be a good idea to develop symbols for each of the components of training which will make these component easy to access.
Newspaper owner offered the role of a cartoonist.
Sanjay brought two gold medals to the Jiwaji University.
