Overview of Graphic design

We see visuals around us everyday. Graphic design is the process of creating content for visual communication. This field is often considered a subset of visual communication and communication design. This broad-spectrum includes illustration, graphic design, typography, infographics, advertising, semiotics and animations. It often involves applying psychological principles to communicate more persuasively. At The Design Village, the Graphic design programme considers multi-facets of the field making TDV amongst the best graphic design colleges in Delhi.

Overview of Master in Graphic Design Course

The Graphic Design programme at TDV surpasses traditional approach to graphic design that is restricted to only decoration or aesthetic embellishments to encompass a more effective approach that relies on the transformative power of design interventions in making a difference in the built environment. The programme takes the students through a sensitizing journey of making them aware of the context within which they operate as graphic designers, and then equips them with the necessary tools to realize their vision.

The programme follows an integrated approach where students look at the domain in the larger context of India and the world. This helps to bring together the concepts and values of sustainability, environmental studies and living traditions. The curriculum helps in sensitizing students towards consumption and confronts them with the responsibility that has to be taken for this cause. The versatile curriculum of the programme allows it to be amongst the best graphic designing courses in Delhi and TDV to be one of the best graphic designing institute in Delhi and Noida.

Area of focus

The focus of the programme is to equip the students with tools and techniques which can help them to become a Graphic designer who doesn’t only solve problems of today but also proposes new ways for the future. Areas of focus include :

  • They work with specific skill based courses like Animation, where they learn about character design, motion of objects, the basics of timing, creating keyframes and animating between them.
  • Through a course in Typography, students learn the importance of Type and typefaces– how to best use them and if interested they are provided guidance to learn the art of type design.

How We Teach

The pedagogy at The Design Village is driven by intrinsic motivation, personal responsibility of the students and lifetime learning attitude, all of which is held together by support of facilitators. The journey of a student is based on the learning manifesto of each student and the itinerary chalked out to achieve it and hence the journey undertaken by every design villager at TDV is unique, and bespoke and it does not have to cease at the end of four years.

Although the journey is individual, the villager is not alone. There is a support system of relevant people, to assist the villagers at every junction.

Each villager charters their own personal learning path. This path is custom made for them with a great mix and match of experiences, projects and tools through three streams of interrelated activities:

  • Taskbox: It includes design problems of various scales and durations derived from real-life situations.
  • Basket: It is a cluster of courses characterized by a common theme, discipline or learning objective.
  • Villaging: It consists of the activities for personal development, with the goal to build the TDV community and oneself.

The pedagogy makes TDV a unique and the best institute for interior design in Noida and Delhi.

Curriculum Details Overview

Briefs for taskbox are offered in a variety of contexts ranging from lifestyle products, public services, accessories to a range of cross disciplinary as well as manifestation independent ones. In basket courses students will go through 2 visual representation courses where they are encouraged to develop illustration skills and styles to be used with various mediums– both hand-done as well as computer aided. Through 10 design projects the students are encouraged to apply this learning and much more while working with real world problems and clients. In addition courses like Implications of Design, Visual Aesthetics, Conflicting concerns, Context Mapping, Design for values, and many more are offered as electives alongside.
