the addition you sent made me feel as if i was being too formal so i’m going to start writing this in my notes app. perhaps it will lead to more text that is a little less edited. it will probably also lead to me writing in shorter but more frequent bursts.
i remember when i was in school after completing a certain project my advisor had said that it seemed like i was more concerned with the presentation of the project than the project itself. this made sense to me not only given the context (a purely hypothetical excercise, not a client project), but also the inherent nature of a design idea. it only really exists to qualify a visual system, to produce a logic, and only can be shared in a particular context (as a conceptual student project, or a solution for a client?).
perhaps the one thing i still find interesting about design is the process of mining an abstraction to reveal some sort of shared visual experience a group of people (designer, client, stakeholders) can collectively agree on. Because the visual experience is tied to some sort of utility it is rendered graphic design.
While the web is a commercial space, the specter left by its origins as a file sharing system leaves quite a bit to be experimented with in terms of defining its potential as a ‘tool’. There is an ambition to reach for something beyond the banality of advertising, or the deceptively cultural such as content (a trap i think i’ve been stuck in w/ all these portfolio sites) It’s not that content is bad, more that a portfolio site's only concern is with delivering content which is an inherent function of the web! (perhaps this means working on someone else's portfolio site is the ultimate hedonistic act for a designer). I think because this base form of utility exists we often forget that there are actual problems that the web can address by way of delivering content.
Some interesting problems a website can solve that leverage and expand on the initial intent of the web as a platform:
- how do i get to my friends house (digital maps/cartography)?
- what events are going on at an architecture biennial (calendars)
- displaying a limited collection of resources re: tax abatement in philly (curated libraries)
Each issue above speaks to areas of communication design that have been around long before the web and seem to highlight the essential reason for communication design to continue as a practice. These problems, in specific contexts require bespoke solutions.
It’s interesting that the general ideas that i’ve abstracted all appear in some form on the class site we developed together. Perhaps that carries some level of significance?
