Design in India

Theory and practical learning come together for a stimulating educational experience.

India has historically been synonymous with art. Yet the evidence of the aesthetic touch in Indian surroundings is waning with every passing day. Living with beauty is a habit which must be inculcated from an early age. Only when the matter of good taste is taken seriously, can economic and social development in India, happen beautifully.

Yet when we talk about a change, no other time has been better than the present moment. The setting up of top French design school, école intuit.lab in Mumbai is a step in the direction of the marked improvement that is required in the field of education related to graphic design, art and advertising.

While the collaboration of France and India makes for a cultural powerhouse, it’s important that India looks towards France as a country worth emulating when it comes to taking pride in their own heritage, art and culture — a mindset that reflects in French contemporary design.

Ecole intuit.lab has achieved success by incorporating professional exposure in the academic curriculum — a much-needed position that has been so far vacant, in the design and art education milieu in India.

Here’s looking forward to a new wave in design education.

Industry Ready

With an education in design, digital and creativity, we transform students into the kind of professionals the industry needs.

With a booming market and increasing affluence, India is the perfect environment for brands and products to thrive. The resulting marketing, branding and communication opportunities are some of the richest in the world and provide the ideal setting for design professionals.

With the increasing influence of digital platforms in our lives, popular digital culture has emerged in India. Which means the digital medium opens up a whole gamut of exciting avenues for designers. This is why we train our students to become savvy and adept in digital design and thinking.

Ecole intuit.lab understands the potential of the Indian market and is committed to creating ‘industry-ready’ students to meet the tremendous market needs. We achieve this by embedding real-life, professional exposure for the students into the academic curriculum. Through hand-picked, professional faculties, weekly and monthly workshops, exchange programmes as well as local and international internships, intuit.lab makes sure that every student who walks out of our campus is ready for the professional world.

This industry-ready talent is what sets école intuit.lab head and shoulders over other institutes.

Creative Intelligence

Learning to use your talents

Creative intelligence is at the heart of our teaching. It is the shared knowledge which young creative people tap into to become designers or art directors.

The main challenge for a designer is to learn to use their creative energy intelligently; to channel and control it. Adapting to overcome issues, drawing on personal culture and knowledge and making wise choices, to find attractive, concrete and astute solutions.

Creative intelligence is an attitude and sets apart those who are experts in their field and know how to contribute to the best of their abilities. Over and above simple know-how, it means adopting an original and relevant approach. It is essential that the right image is found, in addition to it being an attractive image. By the right image, we mean “a visual production which makes sense”, which draws its strength from reflection within a given context, a certain vision, or even according to certain ethical principles.
