I am in Std XI (Science) and interested in a career in design and visual communication. What courses should I take after Std XII and which are the preferred institutes for this?
Visual communication design is a creative field that includes graphic design, digital media and environmental graphics. Designers work to create design layouts, web pages and multimedia designs. But this field has a highly competitive market, so you are required to learn continuously and keep your technical skills current and your awareness of consumer and design trends up-to-date.
After XII, you can join National Institute of Design, Paldi, Ahmedabad for a 4-year professional course in Industrial Design. Selection is through a two-level entrance test. IIT Mumbai offers a 4-year B. Design.
Other institutes are ZED Institute of Creative Arts, Hyderabad; Symbiosis Centre of Design, Pune; Apeejay Institute of Design, New Delhi.
