About us

IIITD invites you to the first edition of Design 360 - a 16 hour overnight designathon!
Design 360 is a designathon where the teams give solutions to critical problems through design, prototyping, and testing ideas. We invite all creative thinkers, designers and UI/UX enthusiasts to come together and build things that shape our future. Your aim will be to convince us how is your solution the best amongst all. In your journey you’ll be required to submit your idea, an interface/video and a presentation at the end. We have planned many little surprises for you.
You’ll get an opportunity to present your product to actual customers and receive valuable feedback along with prizes for all winners.

Get ready to develop a solution that impacts a large number of people. Design 360 is a great place to make both amazing friends and something that makes a difference.

9. What do I get by attending design 360?

You get an amazing opportunity to interact with the community, mentors, get feedback on your design and a chance to win prizes.

10. How is this designathon different from a hackathon?

In hackathon, you are required to code your solution into a working application, whereas in a designathon you are required to ideate the solution and design (UI/UX) the prototype of the application such that it is easy to understand and use.
You are judged on your final product in hackathons, whereas in a designathon you'll be given multiple deadlines related to product design which will be considered in the final results. The whole process of designing a better product matters here.

11. What if this faq didn't answer my question?

Please email us at design360event@gmail.com if you have any queries at all. We'd love to help you out!

Example

This is only for reference on what has to be done the day of the event, the main onsite round is in no way related to the below statement.

Problem Statement: Two friends geographically distant can't connect socially.

You solution: Facebook (suppose facebook didn't exist, you will have to think of your own solution)
You will have to describe the idea of facebook. The main problem it solves, the subproblems, etc. You have to focus on the target audience it serves to.
You will have to submit a UI/UX design of how facebook will look when implemented.
A final report has to be submitted along with which a presentation has to be given to the judges.

The above solution is in no way complete and just a rough example of what entails.
