Versatile Designers

Learning Beyond the Studios

Creative Collaborations

Design for a better future

Students get exposure to a variety of fields within the domain of Communication Design, such as graphics & publication, film & animation, branding & advertising and UX/UI – and many more. Simultaneously, they prepare to be specialists in their chosen field, by selecting projects that sharpen their expertise. This approach enables them to move between generalist and specialist, putting them in an advantageous position to address rapidly evolving requirements in their field.

We extend learning beyond the confines of the studio into the larger social, cultural and commercial realms. Students explore the vast potential of the city of Delhi, and discover needs and problem areas to find suitable design solutions; the citizens are your stakeholders, the city’s culture and its arts, their repository. Our past collaborations on projects include Select City Walk Mall and Katha Publications.

Active collaborations between professionals, faculty and peers from different disciplines allows students to learn ‘with’ and ‘from’ each other. Our emphasis on networking, pitching ideas with confidence and seeking feedback from experts, infuses students with an entrepreneurial spirit, and they become experienced and employable.

Society's needs can inspire designers to innovate. Our students are taught to investigate these needs to create solutions that are not only conceptually strong but also shape how our world looks and functions. Through carefully crafted human-centered projects, we sensitise students to create communications that inform, educate and contribute to society’s well-being.
