Our first design project (DP-I) was all about knowing ourselves, our social groups and our community better. One of the most prominent ways to do that is by the means of an Ethnographic study of the concerned group. At its heart, ethnography is the study of cultures.

As I embark a new journey into the world of design, it would be wise to jot down my initial thoughts.
At NID, as part of our foundation course, the first assignment given to us was to make a poster that displayed our perception of design. Being not very good at poster making, maybe my post will do some justice to the submission.
I hope that as time passes by, my thoughts and ideologies grow more refined.
