A glance into Sarva
We at f1studioz, started Sarva, a designathon initiative in the year 2021 in a hope of bringing all design enthusiasts (designers and non-designers) together and exploring the future of design while solving for the masses. The beginning of a new era in the design industry.
Designing for the future – Creating a better India.
This year’s theme was Designing for the future – Creating a better India.
Design is constantly evolving, and so is technology. With the rapid advancements in technology happening every day, great inventions are bound to happen.
We are headed to the most radical period of change in design history with Design and Technology collaborating now so more than ever and are witnessing the beginning of an unbreakable digital era where physical reality will merge with the digital world to give us seamless experiences.
Our country India has seen a great amount of development in recent years. The Post-pandemic era has seen advances and innovations, in health, safety, security, and much more. It is predicted that India holds the power to become one of the top three economies in the world in a couple of years, and we are almost there as well. The need of the hour is for the creators – Designers and techies to come together and experiment to change the realities of our daily lives.
The question now was, how do we design experiences that are not only packed with the latest technologies and realities but also accessible, helpful, and meaningful for the users? How do we design for the improvement of the future?
