I Saw Design… Articles


Informative post from my fellow Blogger Celena on her blog Lost Civilizations


(Note: I spent my entire commute home thinking of a title for this post and I’m super proud of what I came up with, okay. Except it turns out a lot of people have thought of this punny phrase…

Mastheads-Leading News Papers-UK

d posted earlier on Mastheads of leading Indian Newspapers, Australian Newspapers. For my network of lovely people from UK, for the visual treat, adding mastheads of top ranked newspapers in United Kingdom.

A nameplate of publication is a designed title as it appears on the front page or cover. The term name plate is mainly used in America. It is also called as Masthead in the United Kingdom and many other Commonwealth Nations. In lay man’s terms it is also called as logos of newspapers.

Padma awards for Design

Need to be thought on what A BALASUBRAMANIAM has said. I strongly support the point he has made in this post!

Design thoughts

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 kumarvyasH 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.

Classic Logos of India -6

Operation Flood

Operation Flood Symbol for National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), was designed by Vikas Satwalekar, National Institute of Design (NID) in 1970-71.

The drop logo symbolizes the Operation Flood movement started by Verghese Kurien for NDDB. The White Revolution changed the face of dairy functioning in India, giving livelihood to thousands of milkmen in Anand. The timeless simplicity of the drop signifies the value of milk, its sustenance by and for people of India, making India the largest producer of milk in the world. (Source: D’source, IIT Bombay)
