The Real World

I’d be a fool to assume that design alone could change the world. I’ve been reading Design for the Real World by Victor Papanek and the chapters and essays contained within would have to be the most insightful that I’ve ever read on design. It just doesn’t talk about society, but us living in a society in which design can impact the future. Interesting stuff, but I’m just getting started. Hopefully I could read this the whole way through. I hope it challenges my thought. It has already challenged my sleepy time.

One Response to The Real World

  1. Addendum: After reading the first few chapters the second time, I have to say, “FUCK THIS GUY.” He called Advertising Design “phony”. Fuck his opinion. There’s an art in making you “buy” shit you “don’t need.”
