Graphic Design Workshop

Creative minds in SIO Mumbai got uplifted when they attended the Graphic Design Workshop, an initiative by SIO Mumbai conducted by Br. Ali Imran in three phases between Dec 2014 - Jan 2015.

The purpose of this workshop was to empower young and talented students and youths in the field of art and culture and train them for communication and graphic design, so as to cater the rising demand of artwork and prepare a team of buddy designers who can contribute through their art and address the challenges of modern day society.

The First Phase focused on how to develop artistic sense, Concept of art, its History, Development of Art and Design, Creative art and Design Components. Participants were given Homeworks on themes like Typography, etc.

The Second Phase taught how to apply and present these asthetic sense and ideas in a form of design in a Drawing Software. Also taught the basics of Corel Draw (a well-known drawing software)

The Third and the final Phase worked solely on Creating Designs in Corel Draw. Participants got to know almost all the features and functions of Corel Draw and created different designs on it.
Further some assignments will be given online to the participants. And if required, more classes will be held  further.

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"

'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
