100 Issues of Design in India

“Where design in India is going depends a lot on how we address challenges that face us today, and these are not the same challenges we had 30 years back. Design is a known profession today, it is a definite career (not an alternative one anymore), it is recognized and well paying; the number of design schools has exploded and so has the number of design conferences and events.

But most designers will tell you about their troubles and fears for the industry if you take the time to ask them; despite the appearance that the industry has it better nowthan ever, the struggle for creative professions in India is still very real. So, we decided to ask designers what are the fears and challenges that design faces in India.

While the responses were varied, they largely followed similar themes, and we have compiled them into different sections accordingly. Each of these is a topic for a paneldiscussion and can very well be the theme for a conference. We are aware that this exercise has barely scratched the surface. There have to be more details, counter details and specifics, but it is a good beginning.

So, here is Pool 100 – showing you a mirror and perhaps asking you for solutions. We decided to present this as a book – for some reason books get taken more seriouslythan magazines! It is the kind of book that will help a newcomer to the profession and industry understand where to focus and I do hope it reaches our policy makers, educationists and industry as well.”
