What the Design Industry says about us…

Managing Director, Leo Burnett Sri Lanka
AOD has always produced outstanding young talent and the diversity of thinking of the students and work is different. Above else I feel there is a new design language that is evolving from the work that is on display today.

I think design will play a big part in taking local products and brands to the next level by enhancing their value with good brand identity, packaging and so on. As someone in the design service sector, this is very encouraging. It is great to see that Sri Lanka has the correct design education and training, especially with industry forward educators like AOD paving the way ahead.

Chairperson, Dentsu Grant Group
 We believe that today’s young creative talent must be nurtured and encouraged to meet their growing aspirations. The creative and design industries are also constantly looking to hire bright young individuals in the creative and design fields and the opportunities for employment are growing every day. As the leading communications group in the country we are encouraged with the role that AOD is playing in helping to meet this need by joining forces with the Northumbria University-School of Design of UK. No doubt this will be a great boost not just in Sri Lanka.
