  • Supposedly only 20% of graduated design students become designers. Interesting, what happens to the other 80%?

    The hype is on, the policies in place, the budgets are in place: Sustainability is in full swing.

    Good, very usefull and very needed. But then it comes to product design. When you design a product you are creating a product, you are gonna produce it, create pollution and make people throw their old version to the bin. Doesn't sound very sustainable to me. I would say that the best thng we designers can do is stop designing. Just use your old TV, bathtub, MP3 player, bag, shoes etc.

    Easier and cheaper!

  • SCULPTURE AND MYTH

    Lkji_132_

    The world of phenomena, life of thoughts, every day is transforming into something more, in something which we call another world. That something new, something different become my new reality in which I am, and in which I came throw observing and living our fears, our fights, magnitude and hopes; living our own myths which always made like that, which are needs to surpass evil and nothappiens, which are also collective memories. Those myths are fight of man to overrun him, to be closer to enternity, they are need for man like stories for kids, the collective dream to understand life. The value of myth are never refuted, it always been a real opportunity to understand reality, and it is not possible to not find name in art which isn’t whit his work go thro mythological, and exactly in that looking for way for his realize. One of that ways, like was said Djuzzepe Mazzini “is looking for idea hidden in symbol “, which in my case will be liberated idea from sculpture from drawing, from performance, from word. Waking up from collective ream I was met myself in a big measure with that mythological in man, in women, which aspire to be exceeded. Feeling transformation of that cognition of reality, I was going throw deep roots of material as spiritual. Together with my sculptures I felt transformation of female, mythological, physical, in to something more, in o a bird, like symbol of freedom, like symbol of something knowing, entirety. Meeting with myself – women and women- surrou...

    Following the success and popularity of the Design and Typography Facebook Group, I have recently launched a new initiative Design For Impact, simply a group focused toward socially conscious design ethics.

    With the rise of social and ecological issues, it has come to a point where by Design and Visual Communication has an important (and essential) role to play. I have an ambition and intention over the forthcoming months to launch a socially conscious blog and resource. I would love to gather initial support via the Facebook groups and if there are any blogs wishing to advertise I would love to hear from you.

    Please join up and contribute to Design For Impact

  • God-is_idle_132_

    David Shrigley is that voice in the back of your mind. He is an artist with the ability to tap into those random thoughts that we all have and mine them for uncanny truths. The inky black illustrations, t-shirts, photo series, sculpture and videos that currently fill 27 rooms at the Malmö Konstall are a culmination of 15 years of his quirky logic.

    Shrigley's distinctive black and white drawings line walls in several rooms. Most have handwritten statements along with the image. Others are all text. One poster depicts two people with the caption; "I have a strange feeling but I'm not going to let it spoil the short time we have together." On a t-shirt two characters size each other up with the words; "Put on your plimsoles and we will wrestle."

    In the belly of the gallery is a stunning stretch of sky-lit spaces with hanging metre-tall faceless heads, metal copulating spiders and a wall with giant words reading; God is Idle. Another room holds photographs of street scenes such as a freeway entry sign with four simple letters; hell. Yet another room displays tents that ooze with hardened foam next to a taxidermied squirrel holding its own head.

    How does this relate to design for the greater good? Well, Shrigley was a graphic designer and his work makes me feel human. I think that's enough. Sometimes when I spend a solid eight hours at my Mac it's hard to feel that way. Good design has humanity at its core.

    The whole exhibit culminates in the highlight o...

    Home-79_177_

    The London Business Forum presents The Creativity and Innovation Business: The Lesson for Today Comes from Tomorrow, Inspirational Lessons from the magnificent Richard Gerver.

    "It is universally acknowledged that competitive advantage comes from the people in your organisation, the talent. People conjure up new ideas and organisations have the opportunity to foster environments in which those creative ideas can be implemented through innovation. However, new ideas and innovative cultures are not always the norm in business."

    The event costs £125, and will be held on Wednesday 23 January 2008, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm at The British Library Conference Centre, St Pancras, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB.
