More often than not, designers don’t write, unless there is a pressure. I never saw writing as my cup of tea. I believed that designers speak through the objects that they design. The focus was on developing a portfolio of creative works. I believed that a teacher must be a good practicing designer to qualify himself to teach. (and I continue to treat it as one of the important criteria) I joined IDC because the Institute permitted teaching as well as practice of design. So, till late seventies, neither research nor writing on design was on my agenda. I wanted that my portfolio should speak.
