Arts??? Well, this has always been a fallback for students who failed to land the so called coveted professional degrees (Engg or Medicine). Arts has always received step motherly treatment.
Not anymore. Arts graduates today are at the forefront of creativity and innovation across areas from animation to consumer design to automotive design. Unlike engineering and medicine, these careers require innate talent that is not easily available. The capability to draw and sketch with amazing attention to detail is needed.
Every product ranging from electronics to consumer to industrial products that we use today are the result of the creative capabilities of artists. Whether it is the IPOD Shuffle or the animation in THE SHREK or the shape of the new BMW models, they all have one thing in common, artists with amazing ability to craft their vision into beautiful prototypes that are built and engineered into real products for daily use.
In the next few interviews we will look at real art careers.
