CGD 218 Week 2 Discussion 2 Bauhaus Manifesto Your textbook describes design in light of the Bauhaus manifesto According to the Bauhaus Design History httpdesignhistoryorgBauhaus3html what was so new about the Bauhaus modern art school quotwas its attempt to integrate the artist and the craftsman to bridge the gap between art and industryquot It goes on to explain that quotmass production was the god and the machine aesthetic demanded reduction to essentials an excision of the sentimental choices and visual distractions that cluttered human livesquot Keeping this in mind explain the concept of design in your own words Compare and contrast it with art and explain how quotclutteringquot a design with unnecessary elements can have a potentially negative impact on the message it bears Finally depending on the rst letter of your last name use the Web to nd at least one visual communication piece eg a website an advertisement a logo etc that either exempli es Bauhaus39 concept of design or does not Then describe why Last Name A L Find a visual communication piece that exempli es Bauhaus39 concept of design MZ Find a visual communication piece that does not exemplify Bauhaus39 concept ofdeggn Guided Response Respond to at least two peers including at least one who was in the opposite group as you How are their pieces similar to or different from yours Do you agree that the pieces they ve identi ed either represent Bauhaus39 concept of design or do not Explain your rationale keeping in mind the various elements of design addressed in your textbook After reading the Bauhaus Manifesto the understanding of art and design becomes hard to distinguish Characteristic for the design were clear unadorned type prints the articulation and accentuation of pages through distinct symbols or typographic elements highlighted in color and finally direct information in a combination of text and photography for which the name quotTypofotoquot was created HGD 2000 This leads me to believe that unlike art which is from an artists creativity and perspective design uses typography to convey a message or advertisement about goods services or values When an artist creates he or she is making something unique and tasteful for others to enjoy Design on the other hand is similar yet paper and ink are the tools for creativity the graphics are only to compliment the conveyance of the message This is why the similarities and differences become a blur Both art and design are require an artistic and creative mind to develop but unlike art design utilizes photography and text styles to represent its messages Art also distinguishes itself in that each person has their own unique perspective or interpretation about what the artist is trying to convey On the other hand design clearly states a specific message to the masses Obviously art and design are similar in respect to creative mastery of artistic skills According to the Bauhaus Manifesto excerpt we can thank design for all of the unique font styles we see in our word processing programs namely the sa nserif In 1925 Gropius commissioned Bayer to design a typeface for all Bauhaus communiques and Bayer excitedly undertook this task He took advantage of his views of modern typography to create an quotidealist typefacequot The result was quotuniversalquot a simple geometric sansserif font HGD 2000 To demonstrate and exemplify Bauhaus concept of design I found a wonderful site that attempts to compare and contrast visually art and design using typofoto I chose this site because the messages are simple and uncluttered with unnecessary or obstructive images that could overwhelm the viewer Occasionally too much just distorts the message created with design Attached below is the site I chose even if you do not respond to this post the site helps to clarify the differences and similarities between art and design Check it out Alice 2009 My modern metThe five main differences between art and design Retrieved from httpwwwmymodernmetcomprofilesblogsthefivemaindifferences The History of Graphic Design 2000 The Bauhaus Retrieved from httpdesignhistogorgB auhaus3html
