We are currently living in the Post-COVID world and the way we are working will be the new normal in the coming times. There are changes we should brace even after the pandemic is over. Especially speaking of a country like India, social distancing will be the biggest ever behavioral change people will witness. Why you ask? India is a congested country, distancing or maintaining space isn’t in the Indian culture. But all of that is going to change.
There will be a lot of changes in the design required for this arrangement. Infrastructural changes will be required. From seating arrangements in school to how we travel in metros and trains will have to change and modify.
I see that in this post COVID world, design and innovation will take the forefront. Doors will be open for innovators, designers, and engineers to make the new normal seemingly good like the old one. The design industry will evolve from just beautiful to fully functional. The creative minds will serve a great economic purpose.
How we can seamlessly fit in this new arrangement will decide how it expands or contracts. The world has many reasons to be worried about but it’s time for the design industry to refresh and come up with innovation to make the world a better place to live.
The design has the power to motivate, give hope, and create impact. It’s the best time we evoke these emotions through the power of design and battle bad times out.
