The Design Village believes in impact through design, a life through design. For TDV, design does not only solve problems of today, but also proposes new ways for the future.
In order to design to impact the world, TDV believes that one must investigate what impact that design will have. Therefore, students at TDV learn – how to dream that dream, how to understand the future and how to take responsibility for shaping the world.
In essence, they design the reason first.
Additionally, TDV also aims to nurture and educate individuals by not limiting them to any particular field of design. Students may choose to not specialize in a particular discipline, but can be independent non-silo designers who can impact and change the world through design in any and every medium imaginable, echoing the ethos that a good designer can design anything.
