Homo Sapiens since inception have showcased their creativity through various objects designed by them for decorating either themselves or their homes. If we look at the evolution of human beings since stone age we will find very interesting objects and painting created by them. The creative instincts are visible in small kids whenever they are capable of holding a pencil or a crayon. A visit to various museums across the world will show that human beings were at their creative best at all ages. So the design education is as old as the human beings themselves. However the creativity and design education has changed tremendously over a period of time and has taken altogether a new shape today owing to the vast development in technology. Modern desktop computers and laptops are capable of high resolutions and millions of color combination. Thousands of software’s are available for designing various objects and paintings using which an amateur can create wonderful eye catching objects.
