This is an excellent venue for our students to demonstrate their proficiency in product design and realise their creative visions. realme’s emphasis on socially conscious product creation is like Pearl Academy’s focus on incorporating sustainability into our education. The greatest way for our students to understand how product design contributes to a sustainable future is via experiences like these.”
The participating students will get a chance to present their ideas, showcase their talent to stalwarts of the industry and get the opportunity to get hands-on experience of working at the realme Design Studio. realme Design Studio is at the forefront of the brand’s design philosophy and aims at supporting the new and exciting design trends that are the hallmark of realme products.

We are very proud to collaborate with Pearl Academy to promote and contribute to the development of design talents.”
Commenting on the collaboration, designer Amit Aggarwal said, “It gives me great joy to be partnering up with realme for the Design Campaign for Pearl Academy. Amit Aggarwal and realme, despite being from different domains, share common brand values of speed, sleekness and a suave design language.
In this context, realme’s ‘Dare to Leap’ spirit resonates with our brand language of always bringing something ingenuous to the table — from amorphous designs to fluid patterns to new-age materials. This platform by realme will help our up-and-coming youth to hone and finesse their skills. With this collaboration, both brands will be able to celebrate their approach to design, while also demonstrating how design and technology are two peas of the same pod.”

The initiative follows realme’s pursuit to bring the best of technology and design to its users as part of which it is collaborating with designers who ‘Dare to Leap’ with avant-garde and unconventional ideas and inspiring a fresh wave of young designers in India.
