Design and Art

September 30, 2010 Comments Off on Design and Art

Narani: I think design can be art if it serves a function. I do believe that design has some artistic aspects to it, but design is not ‘strictly’ art. Design is an intellectual process. Designers may use artistic methods to visualize their thinking process but unlike artists, designers work to solve a client’s problem with an aesthetic approach. It’s an integrated process, from research to planning the appropriate communication strategy, to designing functional and beautiful designs, which at the end, serves a function and solves a problem. Art is not ‘functional’. It involves personal expression and is purely for aesthetic pleasure that is appreciated by others.
