Vision 02

The Design Village believes in impact through design, life through design. For TDV, design does not only solve problems of today, but also proposes new ways for the future. To fulfill this ambition, TDV aims to nurture and educate individuals by giving them a choice to not limit themselves to any particular field of design.

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.
