Kerala's premier public consultancy firm Kitco Ltd and Designer Publications Pvt Ltd, publisher of Malayalam's first architectural magazine, Designer + Builder, have joined together to form the Designer Institute of Interior Designing (DIID).

The aim of the institution is to en-cash the growing demand for qualified interior designers and architects to cater to the booming building industry. DIID is offering one-year PG diploma in interior design and a six-month diploma in interior design.

A consortium of KITCO Ltd and Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industries of India (KITCO – ASSOCHAM) will issue certificates to the students who undergo training in DIID.
