What is Design Fabric Low-Res (DFLR)?

The Design Fabric Low-Res (DFLR), is India's first ever student program. The program unites schools, colleges and universities from across the country towards a common interest in pushing forward the industries of art and design.

For DFLR 2017-18, we will pick 12 students from across 4 different streams – Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, Motion Arts + Animation – who will be invited to collaborate with Design Fabric on its projects. These 12 students will be chosen based on a review of their portfolio by some of the smartest design and visual art talent in the country.

How can I be a part of DFLR?

If you’re a student currently enrolled in full-time education and based in India, you can apply to be selected amongst the 12 students for the batch of 2017-2018.

All you have to do it apply online using the application form and send us your updated portfolio.

All the applications will then be judged by our panel, consisting of some of India’s most renowned artists and designers.

Will this be a paid opportunity?
