Design is not Art

Graffiti is Art, not Design

Art:

  • Is not necessarily functional
  • Is beautiful
  • Has emotion
  • Communicates hidden meaning

Design:

  • Is functional
  • Can be beautiful
  • Can have emotion
  • Communicates meaning or purpose unambiguously

What design means to me:

For me the main difference is that art can just be beautiful and emotional where a designed object has to convey it’s function or purpose at first glance. When looking at a designed object it purpose should be obvious to anyone.

Typical things good designers consider:

  • Function
  • User experience
  • Aesthetics
  • Manufacturing process
  • Assembly
  • End of life (recyclability)
