20 min Presentation I gave to school students and their parents in Ahmedabad, India.
Context: There are some popular myths about design in India because of which some students who could have become good designers and led a satisfying work-life, preclude design (often under parental influence) as a career choice. The presentation was to give a glimpse of what design is through some examples. Design can be many other things as well, but the examples selected were to address the most pressing (and damaging) myths.
