Transcript

  • 1. What is “Design”? An exploration through masterpieces
  • 2. Something that attracts, that fascinates, that isn’t forgotten…
  • 3. Something that makes unexpected juxtapositions in a way that conveys an idea simply but powerfully…
  • 4. Something that makes small things big (or big things small) in order to startle, and bring a smile…
  • 5. Like music, something that can also be extremely soothing, harmonious and rhythmic…
  • 6. That is no more than a few words and images arranged on a sheet of paper…
  • 7. And sometimes, only words…
  • 8. Sometimes blurring the boundary between words and images, leaving us unsure which is what…
  • 9. But always making full use of the ‘real estate’ to get the message home… Like architecture on a page.
  • 10. Often using metaphor and imagery to invoke mood and meaning… Always working within the particular cultural context.
  • 11. Using its entire armoury to make us pause, reflect, and act…
  • 12. Often using humour as a way to establish a rapport between an object and a viewer/ user/ human being…
  • 13. Sometimes intriguing, but always visually arresting, inviting us to probe and explore…
  • 14. Constantly searching for the most minimal yet most effective way of drawing our attention, and conveying the gist of the message…
  • 15. Sometimes actually resorting to a shortcut or abbreviation!
  • 16. At times, treating the entire world as its canvas…
  • 17. At other times, restricting itself to just one subtle device to stand out and make its point.
  • 18. Like a magician, surprising us by pulling out amazingly attractive and imaginative ideas from a dry-as-a-bone hat…
  • 19. At other times, conveying layers & layers of fascinating information, without confusing us or letting us get bored or feel overloaded…
  • 20. Never settling for mediocrity, always playful and engaging…
