Anthony speaks at DesignYatra 2009
Anthony Lopez, CEO and Principal Designer of Lopez Design Pvt. Ltd., represented the Indian design community at Kyoorius Designyatra 2009, India’s premier annual design conference. Held in Mumbai from 4-7 September, this year’s event had Netherlands as the partner country.
‘The New Norm’, the theme set for this year’s Designyatra is to encourage thinking beyond the conventional, on an individual level, as a design studio and as an industry. On day 3 of the event, Anthony shared his views and experiences about working with design as a strategic tool in India.
The Made in India label is going places
An alumnus of the National Institute of Design, Anthony is the CEO and Principal Designer of Lopez Design. Not the typical swash-buckling media person, Anthony is a reluctant public speaker and tries to get his studio’s work to speak volumes for itself. Perhaps that’s why he was chosen to be a part of a team of 12 Indian designers who represented the Indian design industry at the ‘Open Minds India’ programme in Netherlands last year.
It’s our time now
A man with varied interests ranging from basketball and jazz to business and politics, Anthony draws upon the rich mixed palette of experiences that life has to offer when it comes to providing design solutions. The studio is accordingly, composed of a merry medley of people from different disciplines besides Art and Design. This includes subjects like Political Science, Business Administration, English and even Malayalam literature!
