About the Book

Becoming Designers is a study of six undergraduate students studying at a particular Art and Design college. The book narrates the experiences of these students’ who are living, working and learning in a design-education setting, a environment I have often dubbed as The Idea Bazaar. It is very much a story that concentrates on the programmes that the school runs, the people who are responsible to execute them and the students who have voluntarily chosen to undertake them. Eventually, it’s about expectation and desires, shortcomings and spot-on achievements of becoming young graduate designers via their Final Year Projects.
