Jalandhar January 24 (Jaswinder Singh Azad)- On the second day of the 8th International Design Week on the theme ‘Design Thinking’ at Apeejay College of Fine Arts, Jalandhar, the students conducted the research about the needs of disabled people under the aegis of Mr. Budi Loonen.

He had instructed the students that an efficient product can only be designed if one first understands their struggles and their needs first. This shall help them to create an original and unique product that ultimately helps them and make their lives convenient.

Mr. Loonen told the students that before entering the field of Design, it is important to have empathy for the target consumer or people for whom we are designing.

While doing this, they first need to design the basic structure and test it to see if this design will actually help in making the lives of the people they have created easier.

Students visited the handicapped ashram and met the visually impaired people and learned about their difficulties

In order to make the product convenient for the disabled people, the students visited the handicapped ashram and met the visually impaired people and learned about their difficulties. This was followed by students putting pictures on mood boards comparing the life of a healthy person and a disabled person so that they can move forward in making products as per the requirement. The students also made mind mapping diagrams to understand the struggles and disabilities of disabled people in order to design the product in a right way.

Principal Dr. Neerja Dhingra, while expressing her views on this subject said,” the dedication and devotion which our students are showing, I am confident that they will be successful in designing such products which help in making the lives of disabled people easier. “

She added, in just classroom teaching, students cannot gain the exposure and experience that they do during workshops. She appreciated the efforts of the faculty of Design, Applied Art, Multimedia, Fine Arts, Sculpture and Product Design for successfully continuing with the workshop.
