David Pye

The Nature of Design 1964

The art of design, which chooses that the things we use shall look as they do, has a very much wider and more sustained impact than any other art. Everyone is exposed to it all day long. Indeed, in towns there is hardly anything in sight except what has been designed. The man-made world, our environment, is a work of art, all of it, every bit of it. But not all good.’

David Pye

The Nature of Design 1964

6 Requirements of Design:

1.It must correctly embody the essential principle of arrangement

2.The components of the device must be geometrically related

3.The components must be strong enough to transmit and resist process as the intended

Victor Papanek

Design for the Real World 1970 (1995)

“Design is the conscious and intuitive effort to impose meaningful order”

slide12

Victor Papanek

Design for the Real World 1970 (1995)

All men are designers. All that we do, almost all the time, is design, for design is basic to all human activity. The planning and patterning of any act toward a desired, foreseeable end constitutes the design process. Any attempt to separate design to make it a thing by itself, works counter to the fact that design is the primary underlying matrix of life.

slide13

Design has become a range of goods, services, shaped by the intervention of ‘the designer’

no longer refers to ordinary objects

slide15

Pierre Bourdieu

Distinction - A Social Critique of the Judgment of Taste 1984

The ability to make distinctions between “cultivated” and “vulgar” taste.

slide22

Definitions of Design

Meanings of design are many and shift according to the context in which the word is used

slide23

Guy Julier

The Culture of Design - 2000

Design is Interdisciplinary

Designers work with: product managers, researchers, marketing specialists, advertising agents, public relations consultants

Traditional demarcations between disciplines (graphic, product, interior) have blurred

slide24

Mike Press

The Design Experience 2003

Designer as Cultural Intermediary:

“A designer makes their own definition of what it is to be a designer and how to use distinctive skills, knowledge and thinking of design to find a place in the world. This is particularly true in today’s age of the knowledge economy.”

Definitions of Design

The meaning of the word “design” is much contested

… as is … the definition of “designer”

slide26

Hella Jongerius

2003

a conversation that might have taken place…

Louise: How wide is the scope of design, actually? Does design count for something in society or does it operate only on the fringes of the cultural landscape?

slide27

Hella Jongerius

2003

Hella: It has to be about something. Commitment is crucial. Mass-production industry has been ruining the market with superfluous design products for far too long. I think designers have a role in this respect. We can do more than supply industry with original ideas; we could have a wider social responsibility

slide28

Hella Jongerius

2003

Hella: Designers have played a considerable part in creating the consumer society, so it would do us credit to instigate a new, more caring way of thinking about products.
