“India Art n Design is an interesting and well- curated design portal with a thoughtful and unique approach to their articles. Not only is it a great platform for designers to showcase their work and impart information, it also reaches out to people beyond the design realm. IAnD has showcased two of our projects and we loved the way they were described in an ingenious style like a story unfolding with a right mixture of photographs and text. The ezine is engaging and it showcases work both, local and international, being truly glocal.

India Art n Design is in a single word - 'Engaging'. I'd give it a 4 on 5 for its content quality and visual impact. The best thing I like about the ezine is the variety of the articles; and simple and clear presentation of the website is good. One definite suggestion - maybe have a section dedicated for student work from various design institutes (especially NID and the like…). We need to give our students’ work more exposure…..and understand design education in India. I wish IAnD all the very best! Keep up the good work; budding young entrepreneurs need to be aware of websites like yours.

One of my favourite childhood tales, which I never tired off was how the weaver bird fixed glow worms to her cow-pat-encrusted nest to attract the Goddess of wealth, when She was on her earthly sojourn one moonless night. 
India Art & Design is so much like the feathered friend. It is practical, artistic and above all inspirational. May the e-zine rise from strength to strength and be known for being a resource centre par excellence as well in the days to come.

"The content at India Art n Design is great. In my opinion, the images could be much much bigger; let's say one image entire length of the page, which also acts as a story break. The title can then come below… Yellow could be a nice accent colour or the Indian saffron orange instead of the indigo colour. A section for cutting-edge materials/construction techniques would be a nice addition.

Bidding Adieu to 2014!

As we wind up for the fulfilling year that was, we step out of our customary thank you’s to acknowledge how much strength you all – our readers, our architect/ designer friends, the fraternity of art and design and our advertisers  - have given us to constantly strive to bring you the most-sought-after stories from the world of design. Our sincere gratitude to you all for reposing your valued trust in IAnD and helping us raise the bar!

We also take this opportunity to thank our team of writers, whose dedication has helped IAnD raise its content to almost a feature-a-day.
