NID, Notings

What I learnt in the 1st Semester at NID_B ?


..and just like that the first semester breezes through.

So what did I learn? Looking back I find that most of my learning was crammed into just a few important days.

  • Everything is design; learn from good design, learn from bad design.
  • Being a student of IID, You should learn to visually communicate your ideas, so that your design speaks and not you.
  • Tune your visual sense.
  • Read a lot to justify your choices.
  • Realize the importance of colour and type.
  • If you choose a medium, do things that justify the medium.
  • Dont fall in love with your first iteration.
  • Sketch, sketch and then sketch some more.
  • Think in Context and use a scale when designing products.
  • Get out of your mindset.

These are the most important things I learnt this semester and most of which was crammed into the 4 days of Jury. I am hoping to make the most of this one month holidays so that i can prepare myself for the next semester.. just noting down learning’s is not good enough.
