A few weeks back, I got the opportunity to attend the ‘Expo PDi’ Workshop conducted by IDC, IIT Bombay. The participants were an amazing bunch of people with diverse backgrounds. Some were designers in reputed companies, IT professionals, toy designers, architects, social workers, teachers, media personalities, students of design, CEED aspirants and a father-daughter team (She is studying in Class 12)!
The three day workshop sowed the seeds of design awareness. Since CEED 2013 is just a few weeks away, I thought of compiling some knowledge I gained from the workshop as a blog post series. Let us start with Typography.

The very first edition of BarCamp Goa is happening on 30-Oct-2011, Sunday at BITS Pilani Goa Campus. When my friend Niju Mohan contacted me for a logo, I jumped and took the opportunity.
Why? Because I love to do a design under a lot of constraints. I believe that this will help me to explore and find innovative solutions. If I am correct, this is my fifth logo for a BarCamp (BarCamp Bangalore 7, Bangalore 8, Bangalore 9 and Kerala 9, Bangalore 10). I have tried to give an individuality to each of them. I suddenly found myself in an ideating mood.
