Chief Guest Dr Parag Diwan said that Design is everywhere around us, from the shoes we wear, the computers we use, to the office buildings we walk by each day. Because of that, our brain often makes decisions (specifically in terms of the items we buy) based more on looks, than on efficiency or safety issues. Design motivates people to buy a product, though many times we do not need it. The world of design is vast, enticing, and is colorful. B. Design would give the ability to make most of the talents and creative vision of the students, he added. Dr Diwan called upon the designers not to lose sight of a product’s performance while designing.
