ART -- This is the basis for it all.
There is no way to get around this. If you don’t understand the elements of design, and how they can be applied to any artistic endeavor, you cannot play the role of a designer, decorator or artist.
You must learn how to see things for what they really are...
You must learn how to explain the reasons behind your artistic decisions...
You have to know what you're doing!
Otherwise, if you don't, which label do you truly deserve: "Artist" or "amateur"?
If you ask me, I say you're all artists. Why? Because, as a fan of DESIGNED, I know the type of company you keep ;-)
Enjoy! -- Carla
Awkward. That’s what they are. There’s no better word. I’ve mentioned this before.
While I find many of Urban Outfitters' books to be obscene, I usually find something really interesting there. That day I found George Lois' classic, "D*mn Good Advice."
