Design today is not only about appeal but also about functionality. It is an umbrella concept that incorporates various aspects of product and service development, said Nealesh Dalal, the managing trustee of JD Educational Trust, who runs the JD Institute of Fashion Technology and has founded the JD School of Design.
Nealesh Dalal is among the prominent revolutionaries who have shaped the base of the JD School of Design and JD Institute of Fashion Technology.
JD School of Design operates a full-fledged campus in Goa with various degree courses in fashion and apparel design as well as interior design in affiliation with Goa University.
While addressing a group of newly inducted students, Mr Dalal said, “Designers of today are no more just into aesthetics.
They are evolving into problem solvers. Designers are becoming an integral part of both back-end and front-end aspects, and hence their vision is no more restricted to just improving the appeal.”
He also added, “From the user experience point of view, the word ‘design’ has extensive use in different fields, and it aims to provide an experience which is noticeable over time.
Hence, analysing a design on the basis of a first-time experience will be an injustice to the entire work.”
The institute is focused on raising a generation of independent and responsible designers who believe in innovation, invention and inspiration.
“We always believe in raising our students as responsible human beings. I always emphasise being a good human being first and then the rest of the ethics will follow,” Dalal said while speaking about the core values of the design institute.
JD School of Design is nurturing masterminds from all over India to transform their dreams into success stories.
Powered by the JD Institute of Fashion Technology, which has had a legacy since 1988, the institute is known to have carved a niche in the field of design education and has provided various industry leaders, changing the design domain of the nation.
JD School of Design offers a plethora of courses in the fields of fashion design, interior design, jewellery design, fashion communication and fashion business management.
Every year design enthusiasts from all across the nation enrol in its various programmes and learn the intricacies of designs with the help of quality mentorship.
