Arte

“Arte è magia liberata dalla menzogna di essere verità”  Adorno

“Art is like masturbation. It is selfish and introverted and done for you and you alone. Design is like sex. There is someone else involved, their needs are just as important as your own, and if everything goes right, both parties are happy in the end.”  Colin Wright

“If design isn’t profitable, then it’s art.”  Henrik Fiskar

“Modern Art = I could do that + Yeah, but you didn’t”  Anonimous

“[…] Ci sono già troppe cose superflue al mondo, non è il caso di aggiungere altro disordine al disordine. […] A un’artista, veramente degno di questo nome, non bisognerebbe chiedere che quest’atto di lealtà: educarsi al silenzio. Ricorda l’elogio di Mallarmé alla pagina bianca? e di Rimbaud? […] Se non si può avere il tutto, il nulla è la vera perfezione. […] Che mostruosa presunzione credere che gli altri si gioverebbero dello squallido catalogo dei suoi errori. E a lei che cosa importa cucire insieme i brandelli della sua vita, i suoi vaghi ricordi, o i volti delle persone che non ha saputo amare mai?” L’intellettuale in 8½ di Federico Fellini

“Quando qualcuno dice:
questo lo so fare anch’io,
vuol dire
che lo sa rifare
altrimenti
…lo avrebbe già fatto prima.”

Bruno Munari, Verbale scritto, 1992

“L’arte dev’essere sempre leggera, mai pesante. Puó anche far pensare, ma alla fine deve… volare.” (Kry, 18/01/2012)

“There are some things in painting which cannot be explained, and that something is essential.” Pierre Auguste Renoir

“La pittura trasforma lo spazio in tempo, la musica il tempo in spazio.” Hugo von Hofmannsthal

“Art is not supposed to change the world, to change practical things, but to change perceptions. Art can change the way we see the world. Art can create an analogy.” ( JR – French Graffiti Artist)

The difference between Art & Design. 

“Good Art sends a different message to everyone. Good design sends the same message to everyone.” 

“Good Art is a taste. Good design is an opinion.”

“Good Art is a talent. Good design is a skill.”

Design

“People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It’s not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn’t know it was missing.” Paola Antonelli

“Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.” Paul Rand

Note: “Il più grande designer grafico vivente”: così Steve Jobs ha definito Paul Rand nel 1996, poco prima della sua morte. Questo grande designer svizzero, infatti, aveva realizzato proprio il logo della NeXT di Jobs, oltre che quelli di IBM, ABC, UPS e molte altre aziende.

“Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent.” Joe Sparano

“Design should never say, “Look at me.” It should always say, “Look at this.” David Craib

“It’s art if can’t be explained.

It’s fashion if no one asks for an explanation.

It’s design if it doesn’t need explanation.”

Wouter Stokkel

“It’s not the idea which is the art, it’s more the way somebody handles the idea that makes art.” Designboom’s famous contest tip

“Your mind wants to make associations. Design does that all the time.” Art Chantry

Note: Arthur S.W. Chantry II (born April 9, 1954 in Seattle) is a graphic designer often associated with the posters and album covers he did for bands from the Pacific Northwest, such as Nirvana, Hole and The Sonics. He is also notable for his work in logo design. Chantry advocates a low-tech approach to design that is informed by the history of the field. His work has been exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum of Modern Art, Seattle Art Museum, the Smithsonian and the Louvre.

“Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.” Jeffrey Zeldman

“Design is as much a matter of finding problems as it is solving them.” Bryan Lawson

“Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.” Paul Rand

Note: Paul Rand (born Peretz Rosenbaum, (August 15, 1914 – November 26, 1996) was an American graphic designer, best known for his corporate logo designs. He was one of the originators of the Swiss Style of graphic design..

“Design is in everything we make, but it’s also between those things. It’s a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy.”  Erik Adigard

“Design is where science and art break even.”  Robin Mathew

“Design is not the narrow application of formal skills, it is a way of thinking.”  Chris Pullman

“Fare grafica per i grafici e non per la gente é come mangiare la propria merda e trovarla niente male….” Alejandro Magallanes, 1999

“You don’t save your soul just painting everything in white”  Ettore Sottsass (“A life in colour” exposition), 200X

“Design is in everything we make, but it’s also between those things. It’s a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy.”  Erik Adigard

“Design is where science and art break even.”  Robin Mathew

“Design is not the narrow application of formal skills, it is a way of thinking.”  Chris Pullman

“Beyond the age of information is the age of choices”  Charles Eames, 1978

“Design is not done with rules, but with intuition. Intuition never lies.”  Jasper Morrison

“Il Buon Design

…è innovazione

…rende utile il prodotto

…è estetico

…aiuta il prodotto a essere capito

…non interferisce

…è onesto

…è duraturo

…è ben pensato fino all’ultimo dettaglio

…si preoccupa dell’ambiente

…è meno design possibile.

Dieter Rams

“ Art is like masturbation. It is selfish and introverted and done for you and you alone. Design is like sex. There is someone else involved, their needs are just as important as your own, and if everything goes right, both parties are happy in the end.” Colin Wright

“ A design isn’t finished until somebody is using it.”  Brenda Laurel

The Dutch Have Two Words for Design

“ In Holland, we have two words for design. One is vormgeving; in German formgeben. And the other word is ontwerpen; in German entwurf. In the Anglo-Saxon language there’s only one word for design, which is design. That is something you should work out. Vormgeving is more to make things look nice. So for instance, packaging for a perfume or for chocolate in order to make things fashionable, obsolete and therefore bad for society because we don’t really need it. While ontwerpe means, and the Anglo-saxon word, but its stronger, means engineering. That means you as a person try to invent a new thing—which is intelligent, which is clever, and which will have a long-life. And that’s called stylistic durability. It means you can use it for a long time.” Gert Dumbar

“Industrial Design differs from handicraft design in that large scale machine production calls for a fully developed design before manufacturing begins; and, what is equally important, a design that is related to machine production and not one incorporating or imitating handicraft processes.
It is not the purpose of a three-dimensional design study, either plastic or architectonic, to make a model. Models are madefrom fixed designs, from designs in their final form. Rather the purpose of a thorough three-dimensional procedure is to enable the designer to keep his design from becoming fixed t static until he has developed it as far as his creative ability and the limiting factors will permit. Then, and then only, will design escape becoming a mere paper creation frozen into solid form.”  Donald R. Dohner (father of american styling)

Design Emozionale

“La soluzione non é pensare di convincere a comprare di meno. Non si puó fermare la tecnologia. “ Jonathan Chapman

“Le persone vogliono possedere oggetti per mostrare a quale gruppo sociale appartengono” ma con la produzione in serie questo valore simbolico ha perso molto del suo significato. Jonathan Chapman spiega che l’uomo, per buona parte della sua storia, ha avuto un rapporto intimo con gli oggetti che usava. Spesso se li costruiva da sé oppure li ereditava da qualche membro di famiglia. Per alcuni oggetti piú complessi ci si affidava ad artigiani esperti che si conoscevano di persona. Tutto questo attribuiva agli oggetti una storia, una “narrazione” e un significato affettivo che i prodotti in serie non possono avere. Non c’é da meravigliarsi se siamo insoddisfatti.

In mancanza di questo rapporto personalizzato e inimitabile, la cultura dei consumi punta tutto sulla novitá. Sappiamo di non poter comprare la felicitá, ma non resistiamo alla tentazione di tirarci su con un bell’oggetto nuovo.”

“Come designer responsabile non posso piú tollerare la superficialitá del design. Gli oggetti Ikea hanno il pregio di portare delle belle forme in casa di tutti peró sono un po’ come quelle storie che cominciano con una frase bellissima, ma poi vanno avanti ripetendola all’infinito. La loro capacitá narrativa é limitata.” La sfida (lanciata da Chapman) é creare oggetti che abbiano una “narrativa duratura”. Per spingerci a conservarli.

“Ogni oggetto, nelle sue diverse forme, é portatore di racconto, ogni oggetto é un sistema mitico, un concentrato di culture o anche un segno di una cultura soltanto.“ Roland Barthes – Mithologies (1957)

Progetto

“Mari ha ragione, tutti devono progettare: in fondo è il modo migliore per evitare di essere progettati.”  G.C. Argan, in L’Espresso, 5 maggio 1974

“Se ascolto dimentico. Se guardo ricordo. Se faccio capisco.”  Proverbio cinese

“Progettare senza ingegnerizzazione é solo sognare, ingegnerizzare senza progetto é solo matematica.”  Anonimo sul web (2011)

“ Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.” Jeffrey Zeldman
