Today more than ever before the need for designers has become a way of life. From designing a party or being an event manager to partnering with engineers on all kinds of projects, knowledge of design is, in a manner of speaking, a prerequisite. Therefore, it is imperative that design education is rethought in all possible branches of Arts, Crafts and Engineering. From Bauhaus till now the design education has gone through a revolution globally and there is no reason for that revolution to slowdown or stop. We are only called to enhance the same by creating competent designers. Education being the foundation of a better tomorrow implies we do the same with design education. Paul Rand said, �Design is a way of life, a point of view. It involves the whole complex of visual communications: talent, creative ability, manual skill, and technical knowledge. Aesthetics and economics, technology and psychology are intrinsically related to the process.� As the maxim goes, �Well begun is half done,� there are no two ways of doing education. We need to be purpose driven with a clear vision and a sense of mission to ensure a universal approach towards design education across India along with a well calibrated design curriculum and we will be on our way to rewriting the history of design education in India.
