research   i


In the state of Odisha, understanding of design is often limited to aesthetic considerations and this is reflected heavily in all sectors in the state. Design is underused by businesses and undervalued by government, but we know it can make a significant contribution to the ‘make in Odisha’. Our research provides evidence on the impact and value of design. We explore design’s role in economic development, tackling societal challenges and delivering inclusive places, to advance the understanding and use of design across the state.


Typography   i


The Typography is the human voice in written form. It is an elaborate study about the mutual relationship among Language, script and Reader. Recently, the Odia script is declared as one of the classical and oldest scripts of India but due to lack of Typographic research and development scopes the recent Font productions apparently look unfamiliar and loses its basic characteristics and forms. It becomes unnecessarily complex and creates problems in terms of readability and legibility contexts. It is really alarming concern for the future of the Script. ODC is determined to work on this area with the help of Government and private bodies.

User Experience & Interaction Design   i


We emphasize on ergonomics of human system interaction, defining user experience as "a person's perceptions and responses that result from the use or anticipated use of a product, system or service". User experience includes all the users' emotions, beliefs, preferences, perceptions, physical and psychological responses, behaviors and accomplishments that occur before, during and after use. We are open to provide design services in this context of interactions in both Digital and non-digital products and services.
