You’ve looked at two videos from different designers (who engage in very different kinds of design) as well as some basic resources to learn the elements of design. How do these three resources influence your own approach to tackling design work this week? Which resonated with you the most any why? Did any of them seem to contradict each other? If so, what do you make of that?
The most important part of these weekly projects is taking prior knowledge on the subject at hand and combining it with additional information that is learned through assignments. So, I guess, that’s how these three resources influence how I worked on the design assignments this week– Combining my various forms knowledge. The TED Talk by Paula Scher resonated with me the most, particuarly the quote, “When I’m designing, I’m both a kid and I’m gambling all the time.” Graphic design is really fun, and so I completely agree with Scher. Designing is playful, it’s creativeful, it’s imaginative, as well as a toss up to whether or not it will be positvitly reciveved by the public. In comparison to David Carson’s TED Talk, I didn’t find them to contradictory at all. The both find deisgn a playful and sometimes humorous form of art. I enjoyed listening to what both of these artisit had to say!
