Product Design Students often find themselves looking for more exposure in the field. Their courses do offer abundant knowledge with respect to product design. However, it helps a great deal to get some hands-on experience.
Gemklip believes it is fundamental for students to be able to bridge the gap between what is taught in school and what is practised in the industry. To achieve this, we often invite students from various design institutions over to our studio. We also conduct workshops dealing with different aspects of design.
Interaction with National Institute of Design
Shanavas M S, Chief of Design at Teqzo Consulting and Gemklip.com, completed a block course on IxD (Interaction Design) at National Institute of Design, Bangalore.
Students from DJ Academy of Design
A few months ago, we had the students of DJ Academy of Design, Coimbatore at the Gemklip store. They had a chance to interact with veterans in the industry and explore the opportunities before them.
Students from Indian Institute of Science
Another such Institute that visited us recently was IISc (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore). The students from the CPDM Department of IISc spent a day with us at the studio, and this is what they had to say.
Feedback from students –
“To understand how things work in a real design studio is an experience that we didn’t have before.”
” We came to Gemklip expecting to know what goes on behind the scenes of an industrial design studio. Behind the products. I think it stood up to that. I’d really like to be a part of this team. It’s seen that the kind of products that are made here will actually make a difference in society.”
At Gemklip we’ve wanted to create a space for design enthusiasts to belong. We’ve always been open to interns, students and aspiring designers to come visit us in the studio and see us in action. After all, getting a look at what really goes on in our studio might just leave you with a new found enthusiasm for all things design.
