The NID is a contribution of many Indian and global brains. In end of 1950 a need for futuristic design education & design research was felt. To reconstruct modern India our think tank gave much needed thrust to attain future goals in field of design and creativity . A newly born country was struggling between centuries old traditions, modern technologies and new creative ideas . The New Movement, the application of Machine Aesthetics, and experiments in the arts, architecture and design were all taking place at the same time. There was need for Indian identity across all walks of life. NID was established to fill these gaps. Years of hardwork has rewarded it with the title of “Center of Excellence”
