Frameboxx launches Pastel IP School for internet, print, broadcasting

MUMBAI: The first centre of Frameboxx Animation & Visual Effects promoted Pastel IP School of Internet, Print and Broadcasting was launched at Chandigarh, India.

Pastel IP will address the need for highly skilled professionals in the print and publishing, digital design, web and the broadcast industries.

"We live in a world that loves to communicate and interact. Over the past 20 years, technology has crossed all known boundaries and has literally brought the whole world closer than ever before. The Internet has now become a necessity and plays an important role in our daily lives and business. Similar advances in the Print industry as well as the Television & Broadcast industry has led to a unique harmony of sorts amongst multi-media. So what goes in print, is also published online and is broadcast on TV channels as well. This has created a unique level of experience which we term as Rich Media experience and this is precisely what a student gets to learn at Pastel IP," said Frameboxx Animation & Visual Effects managing director Rajesh Turakhia.

"We’re always launched our initiatives and brands from the city beautiful and hence we’re launching the first Pastel IP centre in Chandigarh," he added.

The company has plans of expansion in the next two years across India.

"After setting benchmarks in the animation and visual effects training domain, we felt that there was a major dearth for quality professionals in the web, print and basic broadcast industries which led us to conduct an extensive research into these sectors and create a world class curriculum that is a class apart from the prevailing trends and courses," added Frameboxx executive director and CEO Naveen Gupta.

Pastel IP centre director Charanjit Singh said that convergence of technologies has taken communication to a new level that requires expertise not only in technical know-how but more importantly the impact it is going to have on the consumers of this information, which Pastel IP shall endeavour to fulfill.

Pastel IP offers three separate streams for the youngsters looking for high paying career options through three programmes as well as one integrated one-year diploma programme, besides running weekend professional development programmes for working designers, artists, DTP operators, printing technologists, etc., besides summer camps for the students wishing to learn the fundamentals of printing, web designing, and broadcasting, Singh said.

In addition, the company has also launched Pastel@School program, which aims to setup joint ventures with schools to introduce multimedia and creative art education at the school level.
