India Design Year Book is one of the landmark publications of CII. It is in its 5th edition now, having been launched in 2013. Since then it has been the cornerstone of latest trends in industrial design and innovation. It showcases the best work of Indian design companies in the categories of industrial design, interaction design, mobility design and visual communication.

The India Design Year Book could not be published in 2017 due to technical reasons. This year’s book, therefore, will be a double bonanza – showcasing the work of companies in 2017 as well as 2018. Till last year, the process of securing a place in the India Design Year Book was through a separate entry for the same. From this year, the process is being changed to make it a complimentary service alongside entry in CII Design Excellence Awards. Which means that every company which applies for design awards will get a complimentary showcasing in the India Design Year Book.

There will be a cherry on the cake for those which had applied for CII Design Excellence Awards last year -- they will get a complimentary showcasing of their last year’s products in this year’s book.

CII hopes to continue bringing out this high-profile publication which is a window to Indian design ethos and its capabilities. Do write to us to secure your place in this prestigious book now.
