“Design is intelligence made visible.” – Alina Wheeler
Cindrebay School of Design is the result of the sheer passion and love for design, and the desire to pass this love on to those who dream of a future in the world of design. Starting from the first campus in Calicut, the school has kept this same love and passion for design at the very centre of its growth.
With its vision to “be known as a stellar institute of excellence and innovation, both in academia and design, shaping professionals who initiate entrepreneurial, cultural and social change, through leadership, ingenuity and vision”, Cindrebay has unerringly framed every course, held every workshop, and awarded every degree and diploma with this the same goal. This has ensured Cindrebay’s success in the past years and is the same driving force that steers Cindrebay School of Design in its future endeavours.
The newly started campus at Cochin is Cindrebay’s next step towards its mission of facilitating growth and creativity in aspiring designers, and enabling them to reach high standards in creative and entrepreneurial design and fashion. The Cindrebay School of Design raises itself in a city that is humming with excitement and activity in the design field, be it fashion, interior designing or the visual arts.
All courses in Cindrebay School of Design are University-certified courses. The goals for Cindrebay, while framing the courses, are pretty simple: to keep the course practical and the training relevant. The courses are framed in such a way that they challenge students to discover the highest limits of their talents. Inbuilt within the courses, are opportunities for students to widen their perception of design and fashion beyond borders and conventions. To this end, the curriculum stems from the wisdom of successful experts in the field of fashion, interior designing and visual effects.
The syllabus of Cindrebay School of Design in Cochin has been designed by our mentor and chief advisor, the renowned Mr. Gautam Shah – ex-faculty at School of Interior Design (Faculty of Design), CEPT University, Ahmedabad. He is also a consultant Interior Designer, based at Ahmedabad, since 1970. He has been instrumental in framing a syllabus that incorporates his years of experience and his knowledge of modern trends and innovations. The syllabus, thus, is combines classroom sessions, internships, workshops with experts, lab work, and exhibitions by the students, to provide a wholesome learning experience that allows students to create their own path, and be adventurous with their creative ideas.
At Cindrebay School of Design, the motto is ‘doing is learning’. In line with this, we have created a curriculum that offers students the opportunity to both learn and put their newly-acquired knowledge into practical use. Classroom interactions and lectures are coupled with hours in the lab where students are encouraged to employ the skills they have just learnt about. This spurs students to be more daring in their creativity, under the watchful and supportive eye of the instructor. Students are also encouraged to share their ideas in open forums like exhibitions, fashion shows, or demonstrations that are set up with the aim to showcase their creativity.
Our faculty members are what elevate Cindrebay to a higher standard, because without the right faculty members, our stellar courses and syllabi would be rendered ineffective. Cindrebay handpicks the best of the crop, through a thorough selection process, from an exclusive group of industry experts, design and animation professors, and academics with years of teaching and training experience under their belts. These professors and instructors provide the beacon of light that has guided many of our alumni towards success and fame in the design industry.
Cindrebay makes no compromises in giving students access to the very best labs, workshops and software in order to sharpen their skills. Online and virtual learning opportunities, webinars, e-programs, sketching and designing workshops, cutting/draping/tailoring labs and more are available on campus to ensure that a practical learning goes hand-in-hand with classroom instructions.
Students at Cindrebay are periodically encouraged to attend seminars, talks and workshops where they learn about and observe firsthand, the creative process of some of the most successful fashion and interior designers, VFX experts, architects etc in the industry. They get an opportunity to ask questions, receive feedback on their own creations and interact at length with such experts. These interactions ultimately lead to a more refined skill and art in Cindrebay’s students.
At Cindrebay we guarantee 100% placement for all graduates of our institutes. This is what sets us apart from other design schools. Our students have achieved placements in Indian and international firms, and have been successfully absorbed by some of the leading companies in the designing industry, following their internships. Our placement process is facilitated by an experienced placement officer, several campus recruitments throughout the year, and a robust MOU with designing firms around the country.
