Deano, how'd friday's walk go? Make any connections? Some of us are curious to hear how it went.

Most of these contests are more about popularity among friends than anything else- not to put anything down- but it puts a twist on industry standards!

I like David Carson too, and going back in time a bit how about Charles and Ray Eames (1940-41), I'd like to know about more!

artist...I respect your work and admire that you have done so much so well over the years. A lot can be learned from what you have done and still do.

and it seems that you folks are still trying to define terms which is kind of neat and at the same time very reassuring. sorry Kim, can't recall any favorites.

Imthinking... go back a few pages of discussions you find that my green thumb was done before the Lisa or Mac plus came on the scene (probably before you were born)...

Oh yea, one of my Professor's used to say "Good GD enhances everyday life"

I left out the quote marks, straight from wikipedia

Thanks Kim...I like the 'difference between graphic art and design" part. I think you said it well.

WOW, lots of discussion, try Wikipedia's answer to what is graphic design? The key is to first differentiate graphic design from graphic arts.

Graphic design is all about the dynamic that exists between what is being created and the audience, whereas art hinges around the dynamic created between the creator and creation.

Design is all about finding the solution to a problem. Graphic art is epitomized by a high-schooler with photoshop messing with effects. Graphic design is epitomized by geniuses like Joe Duffy, Paul Rand, Stefan Sagmeister, etc.

I dunno, I just like the creations here. Each one conveys a message whether it has typography or not. And as far as I can tell, they are all produced using digital means.

seems like it can, but doesn't have to, include typography and images. in this 1935 def. "as typography and images" seems to be used as an example of what elements are used.

Main Entry: graphic design Function: noun Date: 1935 : the art or profession of using design elements (as typography and images) to convey information or create an effect ; also : a product of this art — graphic designer noun

Graphic Design is type and image combined to produce a powerful message. Sometimes the image is enough. If there is no message intended than it is simply fine art, not really graphic design.

78Deville...take this for what it's worth for the future... All caps in that particular font has always bothered me. To me it reads RHJNG... my other pet peeve a tatoo with all old english capitals... can't read that either.

The contest did not state precisely what they wanted as entries, is it possible that the modern day definition is exactly what they intended?


Imthinking...
2/6/2009 9:28 PM
Accept that and accept our entries and our work for what they are...types of graphic design.

I mean absolutely no disrespect by this, and you did ask for honesty. Obviously our opinions here differ greatly on what GD is and what it includes.
