A few weeks back, I got the opportunity to attend the ‘Expo PDi’ Workshop conducted by IDC, IIT Bombay. The participants were an amazing bunch of people with diverse backgrounds. Some were designers in reputed companies, IT professionals, toy designers, architects, social workers, teachers, media personalities, students of design, CEED aspirants and a father-daughter team (She is studying in Class 12)!
The three day workshop sowed the seeds of design awareness. Since CEED 2013 is just a few weeks away, I thought of compiling some knowledge I gained from the workshop as a blog post series. Let us start with Typography.

On 11-Apr-2010, IISc Alumni Cell is organising ‘Science & Technology Run’ or better known as ‘SnT Run.’ I got a chance to do the branding work. I have handled the branding of SnT Run of 2008. People liked the banners and posters very much: especially the ‘shoelace’ one. Read the full story here.

Suddenly, we had a spark: “Can we organize a design competition for such products in our college department (CPDM, IISc Bangalore) among the students?”
“A good, vibrant coloured football action photograph (like a bicycle kick or a slide-in tackle or netting-in the ball or a fight for the ball in the air) to your liking.”
This was one of the requirements I received from my friend describing the image to be put on a poster announcing the registration for a Soccer League.
Results of general elections in India are announced a few days back. This time, many of the candidates used the latest technologies like blogs, twitter, Orkut groups, Flash banner ads in websites, SMS campaigning… Also we saw a lot of public service ads urging citizens to use their fundamental right to vote.
In my college, this year’s Students’ Council Elections were held on 16-May-2009. I got the opportunity to design a series of posters to inform students about the election. Time frame for executing the work was very short. Continue reading Design — Poster: Election 2009→
