The 10th Pune Design Festival concluded on Saturday. Designers from India and abroad participated.
“The present-day design challenge is to find the meeting point for corporate approach to design, which is marked by greed, speed, consumption and the emerging thinking that creation of a convivial society should be at the heart of the design development process,” Uday Dandavate of US-based design firm Sonicrim said.
Earlier, music composer and expert in music design Rajat Dholakia and E. Suresh – pioneer in animation and storytelling through films, opened the festival with a fusion vocal composition. Mickey McManus, principal at Maya Design, a design and technology consulting firm said design needs to follow the current trends in technology.
