CEO and Chairman
Indesign Media Asia Pacific
Raj Nandan purchased his first magazine, Architectural Review Australia, at age 22 – a prelude to his boutique publishing house Indesign Media Asia Pacific (IMAP), which he launched only 7 years later.
IMAP found immense success with Indesign magazine, which now circulates in 41 countries worldwide – one of a stable of highly respected design and architecture titles that also includes DQ (Design Quarterly) and Habitus. Adopting a cross-platform approach, IMAP is the driving force behind numerous design events including Indesign: The Event (previously known as Saturday in Design), and the highly successful website Indesignlive.
A prominent and highly active member of the international design community, Nandan also sits on several boards, including the Strategic Advisory Board of the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers, and the Advisory Board for Emergency Architects Australia.
