Art of Presenting: Influencing the Influencers

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Apr 1, 2011 5:48:00 PM

As designers for trade shows or any other medium, we are often required to present our ideas across, in a group environment. Our sub-conscious tend to focus on the body language of the decision maker. However, another approach might be to seek out the influencers in the group. The film below attempts to understand the basic ingredients of what makes a person influential in an esoteric way without any metric analysis. It explores the concept of the role that influencers play.

PURPOSEFUL DESIGN: Deliberation of December

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Dec 3, 2010 3:12:00 PM

 

In Latin, December means the tenth month. History dictates that in 700 BC, the Roman King Numa Pompilius moved the beginning of the year from March and added January and February.

From here on, the nameless dark stretch contributed to the 12 month Gregorian calendar as we now know it.

Trade Show Booth: India Pavilion, Shanghai 2010

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Nov 12, 2010 3:51:00 PM


The Tree of Life is venerated symbol in nearly every culture. With its branches reaching into the sky, and roots deep in the earth, it dwells in three worlds- the heaven, the earth, and the underworld, uniting above and below. It is a symbol of abundance, reflecting the immortality of the cyclic ebb and flow of cosmic life. It is a union of the feminine and the masculine. Artists and Philospers have talked about it since ancient past. "It is a universal symbol, which transcends time and space and seek out deeper reality, expressive of the universal consciousness." Psychologist Carl Jung calls our "collective consciousness".

I believe, when the India Pavilion was designed for the Shanghai Expo 2010, the Tree of Life played an important motif in the engineering and the architecture of the space. The highlight of the pavilion was dome structure, modeled after Sanchi Stupa, an ancient Buddhist temple built about 24 centuries ago. In a nod to sustainable architecture, the dome's roof is covered by grids and wires that allow herb trays and solar cells to be mounted on it. The solar cells and wind turbine generates enough energy for the self-sustaining show exhibit and the herbs acts as a carbon sink purifying the surrounding environment. The 115 foot-diameter structure is now considered the world's largest bamboo dome.
