A Bangalore School of Design’s Initiative
Bangalore School of Design has an in house organisation called “STUDIO BSD”, with the leadership of experienced faculty, working professionals alongside students take up real-time projects across Interior Design (Retail, Commercial & Residential), Construction Management, Interior Architecture, UI & UX, User Research & Visual design (Branding & communication strategy). This allows the students of BSD to actively participate and gain practical knowledge and understand the work environment of a Design profession.
This also ads on their Curriculum Vitae that they have been interning alongside their formal education and this gives the BSD student and edge over all the other graduates.
An employer always looks at candidates with experience & sound knowledge on practicality and the ability to execute what has been designed. In general, the students are exposed to the carpenters, painters, Metal fabricators, furniture suppliers, Electrical contractor, Soft furnishings suppliers, flooring suppliers such as granite/marble/wooden, etc., and all other ancillary vendors who bring in their works to finish an Interior Design work. Similarly a student of Graphic Design or UI & UX interact with their relevant ancillary team web designer, sketch artist, visual artist, etc. To gain this network an individual needs to work for over years but with an Association with Studio BSD, a student has access to all the vendors who they can interact and gain practical knowledge and execute great design projects.
