Why did we think about floating this workshop? Finding a common ground to define design has been a challenge due to its multidisciplinarity. We encourage everyone to understand the meaning of design before venturing into (the buzz word) design thinking. What is design? Have you ever tried to define ‘design’? The definition of design seems to be in constant flux. Every attempt to define design seems holistic, but still, something gets left out. No wonder, we are confused about who a designer is, me or them. Let us discuss this in the workshop.

FAQ: Frequently asked questions
I am not a designer, I am confused whether I can attend the workshop?
Yes, you can attend the workshop. Your background does not restrict you to get exposure into the world of design.
Is it different from IDEO cards and Stanford design thinking process?
Yes, it is different. The content of the workshop is not borrowed from the internet. It has emerged from our unique way of learning to observe and empathize. We share our captured observations and let you decode, what it means to think and act like a designer. The workshop is based on our Design Triad Framework, which helps participants to interpret and analyze any design act, in-turn clarifying the definition of design.
Why the number of seats in the workshop are limited to 30?
The workshop is not a passive lecture session, it is a consciously designed lively conversation between participants and professors by exposing them to everyday observations to generate curiosity and enquiry. Therefore, to achieve mindful participation and conduct meaningful interactions with each one of you the number is restricted.
Can you add one extra seat, I missed registration for the current workshop.
The workshop is conducted frequently, please register for the next one before the seats are full. We strictly limit our intake of participants for the improved learning experience.
Can I get answers to CEED and UCEED related queries in the workshop?
You can ask us your queries about becoming a designer and understanding design. But we won't be able to provide you with any guidance or counselling towards design entrance exams like CEED, UCEED, NID, NATA and NIFT. Sorry, this is not the right platform.
In the face of Covid-19 crisis are you planning an online workshop?
Yes, we are currently planning for a online workshop
