Relive Kyoorius Designyatra 2019 | On The Contrary

Kyoorius Designyatra 2019 saw nearly 1,200 delegates come together at the Grand Hyatt, Goa from 19 September to 21 September 2019. Featuring living legends David Carson, Paul Sahre, and several of the world’s foremost design practitioners, Kyoorius Designyatra celebrated contrarianism.

Here’s what our distinguished speakers had to say about the festival:

On The Contrary

Contrarianism is the act of going against the dominant narrative, questioning legacy, rebelling against stereotypes and etching a new path where none existed. It is not about thinking out-of-the-box, but demolishing the box.

Design owes its biggest successes to contrarian thinking. Without the contrarians, design would remain a cemetery of missed opportunities, a boring commodity. This year, Kyoorius Designyatra focuses on the contrarians. Those who changed the course of design, those who ushered in fresh trends and novel thought processes. Those who had the intuition and foresight to spot hidden opportunities, and then fearlessly go against the flow to seize them. KDY will celebrate contrarianism by bringing on the stage design rebels who have been polarizing visionaries, and will also shatter a few taken-for-granted conference legacies.

The Speakers

25 speakers were spread across three days, ranging from industrial design to graphic design, visual communications, typography, illustration, product design, spatial design, architecture, and technology. Here’s a list of all those who spoke at Kyoorius Designyatra 2019.
