Seed ideas for CEED — Tips from a designer

ceed mdes

Can you please tell me what should one have do to be a good product designer. I mean, what are the prerequisites for entering M.Des. course like what software I should know, what books I should read ? I would be thankful for any help you give.

I’m a software professional who is keenly interested in product design and hoping to pursue it by taking up the CEED & DAT exams in Jan’11. Since you guys are also involved in the same area, I was therefore wondering whether any of you could answer a few of my questions about the test and maybe provide some tips, if any..

These are samples of CEED (Common Entrance Examination for Design) or M.Des. (Master in Design) related questions that we often receive. Well, here goes my answer…

Design — Calendar 2009

I know.

I know that it is too late to design a 2009 Calendar. I am looking at the 2008 tabletop calendar that is faded a little bit and has a lot of scribbling – my reminders of various tasks. I was thinking “Well, so far nobody has given me a 2009 calendar. Can I make one myself?” The result: I designed one yesterday and it appears to be nice. So I thought of sharing it with you.

I started the design as a tabletop calendar. Two sheets can be printed on a single A4 sheet. I can make a tabletop calendar with six such sheets and some cellophane tape. Or, I can stick it on to the wall or partition of your cubicle in my workplace.  Later I manipulated the pixel ratio such that anyone can use these images as their computer desktop wallpaper. At the moment only 1920X1200 pixel ratio (widescreen) is available for download.

Let us see what went behind the design. I will try to answer your immediate and obvious questions.
