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 interactive entertaining CDROM was produced to supply religious, cultural, and historical knowledge to the 2nd and 3rd generation persons of the Jain community residing in the west. Sanjay studied the Jain religion and culture with the help of religious leaders and available literature. Based on this, Sanjay came up with stories that weave the essence of Jainism. The interactive CDROM, and the games within, are woven around a boy’s interaction with his grandmother that sends him off on an adventure to quench his quest that teaches him and thus, the user, about this ancient religion.
Newspaper owner offered the role of a cartoonist.
Sanjay brought two gold medals to the Jiwaji University.
