Design: Time and Space

In order to appreciate the inherent core concept of Design against its ever changing image, it is important to examine its progress in historical time and geographical space. Design sometimes has been described as one of the youngest professions and one of the oldest human acts.

Though the word design is hardly ever used in this context, historically, every deliberate action of generating perceivable - and tangible elements that characterized the human environment had some form of design process behind it. In the sense it could be called an organic and evolved design process protracted over a length of time. This has been true of all world cultures, including our own.

Art and Design courses are for those who have impeccable creative skills. A degree in art and design would enhance their skills and gets them better opportunities. The boundaries between art and design courses in India are blurred, largely due to a range of applications both for the term 'art' and 'design'. Art connects with people in different ways, because it's interpreted differently. The fundamental purpose of design is to communicate a message and motivate the viewer to do something.

Art and Design courses in India are gaining popularity as Industry and society has started to realize the role Designers can play in shaping the future.
