Art And Design – The Twain That Shall Never Meet -

Art and Design are:

  • Poles apart.
  • Continents apart.
  • Philosophies apart.

These two terms have become so intertwined in the popular vernacular that generally speaking, people forget that these two things signify different things altogether. One is about having free rein, about your imagination running amok.  One is about playing with a set of rules, other is all for breaking them. One is about being practical, whereas the other is about not letting practical and impractical notions come in the way of creation.

Both can employ and encompass color theory, symbolism and many other aesthetical aspects of life. Their effect isn’t relegated to visual interpretation only but also includes mindful and sensory elements as well. Art and Design are capable of the strangest things in the hands of the maestro, even though the purpose they fulfill are diametrically different.  Whereas design is considered crucial for brands and other commercial ventures, art is more about being soulful and mindful and open to interpretation without any corporate or personal scruples.

So let’s separate the two. Let’s see how they stack up against each other in life, theory, practice and many different aspects. It’s time to know what passes for art. And what passes for design.

Let today be the day that your consciousness recognizes art and design effortlessly.
