DESIGN IN INDIA
THEORY AND PRACTICAl LEARNING COME TOGETHER FOR A STIMULATING EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE.
India has historically been synonymous with art. Yet the evidence of the aesthetic touch in Indian surroundings is waning with every passing day. Living with beauty is a habit which must be inculcated from an early age. Only when the matter of good taste is taken seriously, can economic and social development in India, happen beautifully.
Yet when we talk about a change, no other time has been better than the present moment. The setting up of top French design school, école intuit.lab in Mumbai is a step in the direction of the marked improvement that is required in the field of education related to graphic design, art and advertising.
While the collaboration of France and India makes for a cultural powerhouse, it’s important that India looks towards France as a country worth emulating when it comes to taking pride in their own heritage, art and culture — a mindset that reflects in French contemporary design.
Ecole intuit.lab has achieved success by incorporating professional exposure in the academic curriculum — a much-needed position that has been so far vacant, in the design and art education milieu in India.
Here’s looking forward to a new wave in design education.
