One Love from the Indian Tribal Art- Warli. This has been demonstrated by Adivasi since ages. Noe it is quite popular and emerged as one of the forms of art. Artists like Jivya Mashe (Written about him in separate post: Jivya Mashe-Indian Warli Art) really took this art form of Warli to the world and at next level through his many national and international exhibitions. We tried this on 6 feet x 18 feet white clothe for a backdrop during the first birthday of my daughter Venu. Dung is applied on the clothe and then by using white colours the composition is illustrated. Me and my brother enjoyed while making this! This interesting method of preparing Warli is explained on D’source, IIT Bombay Website.

State of Mind – Different photographs different states of mind. Immense power of Mind. Sometimes sentimental, slippery like water gel beads! Sometimes enlightened, depicted by Dhwaj- Flag on the Temple! Sometimes ignited like a torch! Very few times disciplined, struggling for everyday! And sometimes creative like a Child. Asking for the Childhood back! In Marathi there is song Lahanpan Dega Deva- God, Please take me back in Childhood!

State Bank of India (SBI)
It was the year 1955 when SBI get established and first version of the logo came into existence. It has banyan tree in it and name written in Hindi and English with year of establishment at the bottom of the tree.
Second version of SBI logo is designed by Shekhar Kamat, alumni of NID almost 45 years ago. India’s largest commercial bank and also a fortune 500 company still using the same. There are many interpretations which can be drawn but the philosophy behind the design is here.
As an initial response to the circle form with an open hole, it looks like a key-hole. But, the real concept behind the design being that the circle encloses a common man inside at its centre. The common man represents the centre of the bank’s business. The circle signifies the service of trust, security and perfection for the common man. Moreover, the slogans ‘With you all the way’ and ‘The banker to every Indian’ support the idea of serving the common man as the epicenter of its activities. This logo is a unique example of how to create a quality of a concept with most basic geometric form of design i.e. the circle. (Source: D’source, IIT Bombay)
It is said that inspirations for this design came from the Kankariya Lake in Gujarat and logo too has very close resemblance with the top view of the lake as seen on google map.

Need to be thought on what A BALASUBRAMANIAM has said. I strongly support the point he has made in this post!
Today’s list of Padma awards are out and there is no designer, still, in the list. I blogged about this, last year as well. The government finds it fit to recognise Ajay Devgn’s work as worthy of an award but not any of the design stalwarts, who used design to bring about long-lasting changes in society and the profession. To provoke a discussion on the subject, I present here, my list of Padma awards, deserving for design. This is of course, only the beginning. There may many more that I may have missed.
H Kumar Vyas, Design Educator, Ahmedabad H Kumar Vyas deserves a Padma award for pioneering Design education in this country and giving a distinct Indian touch to the curriculum that was launched at NID, when the design programmes began. He continues to influence and contribute to design education, through his books and research.

A great resourse for the students, professionals in the area of gaphic design. Dr. Paula Dimarco has created this resource using the teaching materials, classwork, students projects and relavant links to the others work. Many pdfs, VDOs, hand on sessions answer all the queries related to the subject. She teaches many courses at CSUN (California State University, Northridge), they are Computer Graphics, History of Graphic Arts, Production Design. The guidlines mentioned for the project work are very useful and clear the fundamentals of the design process. I really cleared my fundamental concept of LOGO Design using the resource she shared. There are tutorials, tips, practice sessions on Photoshop Illustrator also. We can take scheduled course at this webpage. Learn Poster Design, Logo Design, Branding and many things at a single point. I am sure that this is one of the best design resource for gaphic arts on internet.
I would like to thank Dr. D. for inspiring me to learn and practice more deeply, understanding many aspects of Logo Design.
