GRAPHIC DESIGN QUESTION FOR DESIGN MAJOR FINAL PROJECT! I could really use some input! ( See question below)? Topic: How to write about contemporary art
May 22, 2019 / By Cristina
Question: I'm looking at possibly doing my senior project on educating the public about good GRAPHIC DESIGN, and why it's important. To help me with that, I would love it if each of you could recount a story (doesn't have to be long) about a time when: (For non-designers) You were confused about what made a (graphic) design good (note the word "design" here, this is not meant to turn into a discussion about contemporary fine arts). If you can't think of a story with this, simply write about whether or not you think design matters and why. Try and cite a specific example. (For designers) You were trying to compare designs in front of a non-designer who could not understand what made one good and the other bad.

For me, I was in a meeting for re-designing our station's website and I was trying to explain to the web department (who are mainly in charge of content rather than visuals) about how we needed to cut a lot of information from the homepage to increase visual digestibility and help visual eye flow. I remember so perfectly, I told them that less is more and it will look so much better than... And before I could finish my sentence our GM replied "The yellow pages." Funny because he is a businessman and has nothing to do with graphics, but he took the words right out of my mouth.

Bettina Originally Answered: Should I take graphic design or business? or both?
You should take up business studies so that you will learn how to manage a business and other strategies that are important. I am also into fashion and graphic designing, but i took up marketing instead. Why? Graphic designing and fashion designing could be learned through vocational studies. My plan is to study graphic designing during my summer or after graduating college. Learning the process of business takes practice and experience, while graphic design could be learned in a short span of time! hope i was able to help

ooooh what a GREAT COMBO You most likely will NOT be able to minor in graphic design to will have to major in it. Make sure to get pics of your work to submit them for the application. I hope you can minor in business that would be a great combo after graduating college.

I was showing my non-designer boyfriend concepts for a logo that I am re-designing and he couldn't see why I would want to improve the logo in question. I think the problem was that my logo was a fairly simple vector of a bird whereas the original was quite a detailed line drawing and he thought that the original had been well drawn, and hand drawn, and a lot of effort had been taken! (Or maybe he just doesn't have a clue) Here is the original logo in question (mine has yet to be submitted to the client): http://www.fork.org.uk/

Toal Originally Answered: Does anyone know where can I find old graphic design?
Well..You didn't specify how old the graphic design you wanted was, but here are my suggestions: I think your best bet would be to dig in and do some research into different zietgiests and designers from different period. One you know some designers to look for, it will be easier to find the images you want. It should be easy to locate the images you want through either the internet or print sources with the names of designers (moholy-nagy) or movements (art nouveau). Also - a great medium to look at for older design is printed posters and advertisements.
