DDS included a two day Conference on June 19th and 20th, where eminent designers from a wide range of specialisations ranging from User interface and Human Computer Interaction to Communication and Industrial Design shared their vision, experiences and case studies. This event also showcased design projects by the outgoing batch of Master of Design (MDes) students of the five streams at the The Industrial Design Centre, IIT Bombay. From design for safer cooking to showcasing of traditional handicraft; from developing a Marathi text predictor to imagery on Buddhist thought- the projects showcased the diaspora of interests that converge in the IDC Department.

Movie screenings were organised by the students on the third day. “Goopi Gawaiya Bagha Bajaiya” was particularly enjoyed.

The event was attended by Design professionals, Academicians, Design students from various institutes, experts in various fields related to design, writers, artists, media professionals and general public interested in design.
