Is there a need for design to be both useful and beautiful?
Publication, Editorial and Academic Design
This project is a response to the project brief to write a dissertation on something which interests you as a designer. I wrote about the turbulent in-flux relationship between beauty and the design industry.
I found myself writing about beauty's influence on design and the crux came down to my insistence that beauty can act act as a facilitator of design's utility. It serves a role far beyond the superficial aesthetic and incites people to gain access into the purpose of the design so they can better understand the reasoning and usefulness behind the design.
