One lazy afternoon in November. I was chatting with my friends Pavan and Pankaj. We were discussing about cute product designs featured in a website and were admiring the designers. Suddenly, we had a spark: “Can we organize a design competition for such products in our college department (CPDM, IISc Bangalore) among the students?”
Thus ‘dpe’ was born. ‘dpe’ means ‘Design | Participate | Excel.’ I made plans for a teaser kind of series ads to generate interest among the students.

I am in love…
The department where I study design in Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore is CPDM – Centre for Product Design and Manufacturing. To brand this relatively unknown department, my friend Pankaj initiated a T-shirt design competition in March, 2009. Almost all the students in my batch took part in this. The best design is selected by voting among ourselves. One of my six designs – ‘I am in love…’ — won the maximum votes and subsequently 30 T-shirts were printed and distributed on the 1st of October.
The alphabet ‘M’ in the department name ‘CPDM’ is modified to resemble a heart or love symbol. Using appropriate color coding, the message can be read in two ways. It can be either ‘I am in CPDM’ or ‘I am in love with design.’

Here are the design decisions I made while designing this brochure.
