About

Hey there, my name is Sonaal Bangera and I’m a Designer who loves crafting solutions for the web and especially mobile. I grew up in Mumbai and currently based in Chennai, India. I co-founded a design and development studio called NFN Labs where we build beautiful / functional web and mobile apps. I also run Kabadiwalla Connect – where our aim is to work with the kabadiwalla ecosystem and find out ways to send less waste to India’s landfills (till date we have saved 140,000 kgs of plastic from entering landfills)
