Great read: AIGA Eye on Design
“I always tend to radicalize a bit, but the human component has disappeared from people’s thinking. Men today are permeated by ambiguous, confused languages. Since most matters of primary survival have been solved, the problem lies in a communication system so deceptive that men overlap the idea of creativity and culture in these language systems. I studied this matter all my life. The problem is that the human race is almost extinct and what we see walking around our cities are human-like cyborgs that conform to the easiest rules without thinking.”Enzo Mari – from an article on AIGA’s Eye on Design website
I do love reading the American Institute of Graphic Arts’ web site “Eye on Design,” and you can sign up to get their latest offerings in an email alert/newsletter here.
Their articles cover everything from the history of graphic design to the latest design trends and provide inspiration and education to everyone – not just designers.
