The 4 Year UG Pathway in Product & Accessory Design is designed to produce competent, creative and ethical product designers/entrepreneurs who are intellectually mature, ecologically sensitive, and socially responsible. After a year of basic design exploration in Foundation, the pathway focuses on human-centered activities, functions, and aspirations, and works towards creating employable graduates who are well balanced in their knowledge and skills in products, designs, aesthetics, forms, craft & manufacturing and communication aspects of the discipline. After a fundamental study of human-centered design and design process, students take advantage of a flexible curriculum that covers a wide range of product and accessory specializations.

The focus of the course is to provide a graduate learning pathway through distinct levels of subject competencies and differentiated areas of in depth learning in the field of Product & Lifestyle Design.

The intake of students for the design specialisms is from diverse backgrounds. Initial level exposes students to design concepts, experience of visual communication or practice in working with materials. The structure and content introduce and develop a broad spectrum of skills and concepts which develop sequentially to prepare students to take up the challenges of degree phase of the study.

In the next stage the learning concentrates on the basic understanding and skills significant to Product & Lifestyle Design. The level focuses on enhancing and expanding the student’s knowledge and comprehension of creative and design subjects introduced in the beginning. This level aims to further develop design sensitivity and acquire basic knowledge and skills for Product & Lifestyle Design.

In the intermediate learning stage the integration will be continues, and students will be exposed to wider theoretical contexts and intricate systems of technical contexts, and apply these to more complex and independent design investigations for Product & Lifestyle Design. Further the student will be provided an option to study in other academic venues in India or abroad, at approved institutions, under a Student Exchange scheme. The Students at this stage will get an opportunity to link with Industry and develop their practical understanding through exploring themselves in Industry setup and gain first-hand experience.

The advance level is based on self-study. In this level, student-faculty direct contact is minimized and students are encouraged to expand their learning both in breadth and depth under the mentor guidance. Students will be given options for elective study and will engage for inter-disciplinary explorations. This level will be concluded with a Final Project in which their knowledge and skills will conclude in an independent, creative and innovative exploration learning and material to provide various Design Solutions.

Pearl created the foundation to pursue my higher studies at FIDM. The curriculum is rigorous, with experienced faculty sharing knowledge of international trends and markets. I am happy that I chose Pearl Academy.

I started working right after graduation, but felt something amiss. That’s when I was introduced to Styling for Interiors. As a stylist, I worked with various magazines like Elle Decor, BBC Good Homes, Casaviva and also did freelance shoots for Maxim and Femina. I have also styled brochures for various stores and done up store and window displays. As a field, I think Interior Styling is an extremely upcoming field as more and more people are moving into builder houses and semi-furnished rented apartments where there is a greater need for a decorator to help do up the space than a full-on designer.
