BOOK REVIEW

Hello World: Where Design Meets Life, Author: Alice Rawsthorn.

By Steven Heller – 16th-century Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde [2, 3] for example, “invented” the common equals sign when he had tired of writing the words “is equal to” and sought a less onerous way of conveying their meaning. “Choosing a pair of parallel lines of equal length was an inspired solution, and a brilliant example of [graphic] design’s power to solve a practical problem.”

“If you believe in design as a powerful and productive medium that can help to build a better life, it stands to reason that we need the best possible designers to do so.

“We are not likely to get them if design is seen as so marginal a discipline that its practitioners are eager to reclassify themselves as artists.” more> http://tinyurl.com/mta3c2e
