Perhaps, it is this in-between state of Industrial designers that impels them to push the envelope in design and innovation.

It has been 25 years since the invention of the world wide web and more than 2 billion people are now connected. How does this information revolution affect us personally, socially and morally?

But don’t misunderstand me. I don’t mean that we can’t BE firemen, bankers, or doctors—but that we must make the goal conform to the individual, rather than make the individual conform to the goal.

Before there was a phonograph, there was a diagram of it. This is the case with many of the inventions we know today. Scientists and inventors have always used diagrams to simplify complex ideas— these drawings are often the first step in turning nebulous thoughts into a tangible thing or theory.
Khyati Trehan, a design student in New Delhi, pays homage to the beauty of the scientific diagram with a series of lettering illustrations that depict some of the most important scientific and technological advancements of our time. There’s an invention for almost every letter of the alphabet, each corresponding to the person who was credited for making the discovery.
