Something that had been running around in my mind for the past few days.
Now I feel better. Probably will change as I see it in the light of day.

  • really nicely put and very true...
    I remember back in college it took quite a bit of time for everyone to get the fact that design is about balance...students with a fine arts background gravitated more towards expressiveness while the ones with a purely functional background like engineering found it quite a task to get the aesthetic right. I would say its still a struggle everyday to get that fine balance... :)

  • I agree. And Design is a bridge between Engineering/Funtionality and Art/Expressiveness
