Design vs. Art

June 21, 2007

Last week, Joshua Porter wrote a post, Design is not Art, Redux. Today he posted some of his favorites from the discussion to that article.

I found both of these to be interesting reads. I agree with the distinctions that Josh is making between design and art. Design is trying to communicate to a specific audience. Art may not speak to anyone. Some of those who commented pointed out that a lot of times art is more for the artist than the public.

I am still trying to process this idea. I appreciate articles like this that cause me to think and reexamine.
