An examination of where we are with user experience design in India, how start-ups think about it and the social impact it can have on our nation, especially on the elders of our society.
In our first post that is solely about visual design, Anupama talks about how very informative the design of comics is on a very basic level and examines the tradition tracing it all the way back to the classical styles that form the basis of the modern art-form of comics.
Keeping in mind failure scenarios that you know about is doing a good job. But a better job is when you take into consideration failure scenarios that you can't anticipate. There are opportunities hidden within these unknown scenarios if we would take them into consideration during design.
Redd has taken another step to be more environmentally friendly. Our studio is now powered by the sun and we did it without breaking a sweat! Read this article to find out how simple the process really is and adopt it at your place of work too if possible.
Redd was recently invited to judge a design competition between many design schools across Delhi. This provided us an insight into the state of design education in India. The report is hopeful and positive but with a realisation that there's much more learning left. Read on to know more.

While other fields of design hinge upon other principles, software design is about humanising technology. Technology has been becoming more and more complex. We are on the verge of a paradigm shift where it is only possible for machines to talk to each other and human beings just cannot process the quantum or speed of the information.
