Stopeeeeeeeett!! before we scatter our friendship now oh
This speaks volume!
Based on everything you’ve mentioned, What’s the definition of design?
But a lot of people see design as secondary to art or should I say function as secondary to aesthetic
Have you ever had to defend this
@habeebsanni I have seen ur designs on IG and I initially never knew about designs but I fell in love with them. They’re really beautiful. Well done
So who is a Designer?
Let’s recall that “Design is simply the desire to make things pretty while adding a semblance of orderliness in other to make life easy.” Consequently, an architect is a designer just like an interior decorator, artist, mechanical engineer, plumber, tailor (etc) merits to be called Designers.
Lol who am I to trespass but sha he is a fine guy. I don’t want to ask that question sha but curious
If designers weren’t designing…
Countries would have no flags, companies would have no logos and Olympic athletes would have blank uniforms, leading to massive confusion, a worldwide drop in morale and patriotism, and a very colourless, unimaginative planet.
The Internet would be stuck in 1993, with nothing but text-based browsers to help you check email and read websites.
Artwork like event posters, wall murals, building signage and public art would be missing.
in other words, the term " designer" isn’t limited to graphic designers alone.
So in other words, if you can move and rearrange your house to fit your taste, would you call yourself a designer?
So if a design is pretty and functions well, it can be defined as being good?
It takes consistent effort to be a professional designer but my dear, from that point you a re-arranging the house until someone else decides to make a change…you are the designer responsible.
A design shouldn’t be classified as good until it solves a problem.
But not a professional one sha o
I stand to be corrected, i believe the graphic designer profession came to be or became more known with the technological development. Before which we’ve had Country flags and others you mentioned here
We had painters and artist that do these things back in the days
Wow…I love love love this explanations…
I have never had such specific discussion with someone. But like I said, design can have all the beauty but it is not good if it does not solve a problem.
How long did it take you
What advice would you give to upcoming designers who are yet to be professionals?
