Hi! I am a design researcher
and strategist based in Baltimore.

I am an interdisciplinary designer from Pune, India that is fascinated by multi-faceted, imperfect interventions. I enjoy designing systems and strategies to achieve equitable and sustainable outcomes.

Utilizing a variety of people and planet centered tools, I often work at the intersection of technology, ecological justice and social impact.

I combine my design skillsets with social and ecological justice frameworks to help facilitate relationships with a future-focused take on civic services and systems.

Born out of chaos, I find peace by being among the living - the greens, browns and blues. Always up for a virtual cup of coffee or just a chat. Reach out at eesha.patne@gmail.com

Design Strategist for the Ecological Design Collective through MICA’s Center for Social Design
