“If creativity survive the formal education, it’s a miracle.” Einstein

I think the title here says it all. It s a speech by Albert Einstein, help ‘Speech on Education and Socialism”, troche in 1930, and yet we are still ‘there’. Here’s some reading wrote by Kate Strain discussion about it. Read here.

 

Someone I would love to meet in person, is a graphic design, Bruce Mau,. Here he talks about design and how it should be part of the ‘important’ list in our society. It is definitely,  a must listen and discuss among designers. I have been wondering about the same topic for years, and still I have not found any answers. If design is so important in our everyday life and everything we do, (and that is what I have been constantly telling my students) then why is it not part of our education syllabus, our practice, our community, our policies, our business oriented, our government and our thinking (even though we all talk about design thinking is important).

Design have the potential to make change.

Work on what you love Mau

Visual and seduction. Another interesting video to sharpen your understanding of the use of visual construction and how it can influence our way of doing and living in everyday life.

This video is done by the beauty product company by LANEIGE U.S. Besides selling the product, information pills
Laneige touch a bit on the idea of seduction and beauty. I also like the way the images and the videos been carefully constructed here. So here it is a video worth to be shared, not for the selling of the product or for the sake of the advertising but for the love of design. Funny, as much as it is a seductive video and I can see that it will be selling well the product, after the understanding the idea of construction and deconstruction, examining it and breaking it layers by layers, the video is now less seductive for me.

Designing book is no joke. It’s a serious business.

I would like to share few more interesting talks by Chip Kidd, youth health an American book author and book designers. His talk in Ted is a fantastic performance, here which I think he have made a point that design is not only about designing the actual piece of design, story such as book cover but also about how do you get the message around – communication skills. In his talk, Kidd have shown the audience that designing the book, book cover and the content layout is not a joke. In fact it is a real serious business and need a lot of understanding about book before you start designing.
