Collection Of Industrial Design Sketches

These are some of the links I referred to get inspiration while preparing for M.Des (Master Of Design).

To know more about Design in India:- http://www.designinindia.net (This link would give information about various design entrances, design colleges in India, etc.) http://teacupblog.blogspot.in (This link is the one-stop solution for the preparation of design entrances, DATs, interviews and more.)
