programme overview

We’re in lookout of 30 individuals who’ll shake the world with kick-ass communication design in the coming decades.

Are you one of the ‘Special 30’?

Design education has evolved immensely after its birth a century ago. Most universities and design schools have adapted their curriculum as per the ever-changing global and local needs, situations and technological advancement. But at Vijaybhoomi we are looking at communication design in a new light. With the unprecedented technological advancement where virtually everybody is a content generator, the top-down approach of communication design is getting obsolete.

Vijaybhoomi D-School is turning the table and looking at the entire discipline bottom-up. Where the roots and traditions of communities form the foundation, where design empowers people. Vijaybhoomi D-School aspires to be the most modern and futuristic school in the country in the Communication Design domain.

Vijaybhoomi School of Design campus is situated in the foothills of Sahyadri mountains at Karjat, near India’s financial capital Mumbai. All design inspirations come from nature. With a beautiful campus in Mother Nature’s lap, Vijaybhoomi is a fertile ground for new ideas and innovation.
