Environment Design Decoded through its Fundamentals

Environment designer, Ayan Nag, shares insights about the nature of working in this arena and related learnings gained through the work process.

To start with, could you please tell us about Environment Design as a genre and elaborate on the intricate aspects it involves?

Ayan: Environment Design is an umbrella term just like Concept Art. In general, this is a process where we plan and execute the surroundings of a given scene. From designing the colour, mood, shape and language to designing the props, everything falls under this category.


A lot of the time, these individual aspects would be undertaken by different artists and teams. Early into a project, just a handful of artists might be handling multiple aspects of the process. For example, a team of 2-3 artists could be undertaking the whole design process. As the visual language gets clearer, work would be split up amongst bigger teams and artists.
