"Good design is in all the things you notice. Great design is in all the things you don’t" - WIM HOVENS
"Designer" is a very broad term which describes very few specialized individuals. Designers are problem solvers and like what Wim Hovens says, their work may or may not be noticed by the general population. The people behind "Great Designs" are a revered few.
Industry examples of companies affected by Design
Design in short is a highly effective thought process directed towards problem solving. In the recent past, the emphasis on design is making or breaking the fortunes of companies.

Path to become a Designer
One can become a designer at an undergraduate level and a post graduate level. So if you miss the bus at an undergraduate level - all is not lost!
Design Exams to prepare for & Universities to Target:
All colleges have a 3 stage admission process - Design Aptitute Test (DAT), Studio Test & Interview with Portfolio review. So applicants must have a holistic approach to their preparation.
Primary Departments in Design Colleges
Generally, the first year is common and students start to choose their specializations in subsequent academic years. The broad categories of specialization are listed below:
Note: Fashion Design has its own classifications which is covered in detail on our Fashion Design Page
DQ Labs Coaching for NID and other Indian and Global universities for Design Programs
Design Quotient Labs (DQLABS) takes pride in its unique Design Training Programs which successfully trains creative students to gain admission into their dream design university. Our previous students have got admission into leading design universities like NID (UG and PG), India; Carnegie Melon University, USA; Instituto Europo di Design, Italy etc amongst others.
All the DQLABS study material and the teaching methodology for Design entrance preparation is a result of years of experience we have gained through mentoring thousands of Design aspirants at our design studios in Bangalore, Chennai and Pune.
I owe a lot you guys for my results. I got a score of 131 in nata and the third rank in karnataka's cet. The drawing skills I developed with you also played a major role in me securing the 359th rank all India and getting admitted to SPA Delhi.
I took a ten day crash course with you as well as a 1 year online course during my 11th standard. I finally took another 10 day refresher course after my 12th boards. I really enjoyed the time I spent with you guys. What impressed me a lot were the corrections you were able to make in my sketches. You helped me transfer the ideas from my head onto paper really effectively. I've got no complaints really, you were efficient and my teachers were good. Some of your assignments like speed sketching were a lot of fun!!
On the whole, I enjoyed my time with you and I ended up with really good scores.
Thanks a lot!Ashwin Abraham
I am student of DQLABS and took the seven days crash course. The exhaustive study material helped me immensely while the numerous mock tests helped me see how the actual exam would takes place, ensuring better time management and accuracy on my part. i am grateful to DQ Labs for helping me obtain my score and realize my dreams.Tanya Shah
I had enrolled for a two weeks course at DQ labs between the 1st of April and 13th of April, after which I wrote my exam on the 30th of April, giving a two week's gap of practice in between.I got my scorecard yesterday and I got a "134/200".I am very happy. This won't have been possible without the help and guidance given by my teachers at your Institute.Thangson Tombing
I would like to thank Mr. Umesh and Mr. Shaun and their team of teachers for their skilled support at every step of the way. Each and every day spent in those two weeks meant a great deal in my exams. Those 2D, 3D, 2-point 3-point perspective and the practices, plus assignments really honed my skills and the encouragement I got from my teacher, I am so grateful for that.I certianly have no regrets of taking this coaching at your institute.
I have been a student of DQ Labs for the last one month for my NATA preparations I cannot thank Mr Shayam and his group of teachers enough for the invaluable help they have rendered me during this time.
The online study material and the mock tests were all very helpful. As a matter of fact a few questions were straight out of the online study material provided . The regular assignments helped me to realize a few important aspects of what I would experience in my drawing tests.
I would also take this opportunity to thank you for rescheduling and being so cooperative and flexible about my timings.
I must confess that I was quite skeptical about online classes and how serious they would be or how effective would they eventually end up being , but now I can say with confidence that every bit of the score which I have got in NATA is because of DQ Labs and their help.Indrajeet Haldar,
