How design is changing
"I came across the diagram above defining the different stages of design, which seemed to me to be a good place to start. On the left, you have style. What something looks like. The craft of aesthetics. Beautiful design makes the medial prefrontal cortex light up, just like sex. Sound, touch and even smell can be used by designers to get the hormones racing.
Moving right, you get to form and function – how exactly will the thing that you’re designing work, and will it work in the right way. Then we have problem solving – a lateral, agile thinking process. And finally we get to framing, which is my favorite part – questioning everything right at the beginning. In my opinion designers don’t ask this enough.”
Hello and welcome to my online journal where I gather my inspiration.
I am a twenty-something student at The Glasgow School of Art. My interest is at the crosspoint of design, psychology, innovation, art and culture.
Please, don't be a stranger! Let’s talk about design, art, culture, being a design student – and whatever else. You can reach me any time at email@example.com
