DAD IS HERE
DAD- Design Awareness Drive is a community of Design Researchers, Professionals, Graduates, Students who have come together to help the industry, academia, aspirants, craftspeople, and lower-level executors. Design Thinking has changed the scenarios of the industry not only based on design but products related to lifestyle, sports, and medicine. It’s time to practice Design Thinking even at schools and skill-based institutions. To initiate the process we have launched “DAD THINK LABS” to reach out to grass-roots level.

Promoting higher education in Design with fostering Innovation
DAD Think Labs prepare individuals to take their career in Design through several routes. One can be a basic thinker and problem solver even at school level. After the school, it can be carried forward via degree courses from regional, national and international institutions. There are several vocational and skill-based educations that can be taken up.
Students who are preparing for NIFT, NID, FDDI, IICD and other design colleges must drop the concept of coaching from their minds and should take up Think Labs and make themselves equipped with raw and creative freedom.
