Article Body:
The word ‘design’ is multifaceted. It can refer to plans, proposals or creative endeavors. Design surrounds
us in every aspect of our life--homes, buildings, city planning, vehicles, art, theater, clothing, and toys. Even
food has a design element, presentation. So, design is what makes anything functional, appealing and
attractive. It has aesthetic functions that result from inspiration, research, and modeling.


To some the sense of design is ingrained in their genes, while others acquire a design sense through rigorous
training.


The principles to be used will of course depend upon whether one is looking at architectural, automotive,
computer or machinery design, which are scientific in nature and have different aims, or communication
design, which is applied to advertisements, books, magazines, websites, and so on.


In the case of communication design, it must have a focal point, everything else being secondary. It must
follow certain simple rules: the design must be simple and clutter free, it must represent clearly the theme or
element for which it is in use, it must be functional and have a visual hierarchy. The size, color, texture, and
types must be varied to create depth and contrast.


The keys are: alignment, proximity, repetition, and contrast. The spaces must create depth and the colors
harmony. Good design is said to be 98% common sense.


Before a design is visualized, one must determine what it represents, its uses, the audience, the focus, and
goals. Every design must portray emotion and imagination –it must draw the eye time and again to its
center, and elicit a response and recall.
Creativity, the ability to listen and comprehend what others have to say and absorb the very soul of the
project concerned, are the qualities of a good designer. Design straddles many worlds—philosophical,
scientific, as well as creative. In each world, design, like a potter’s wheel, gives shape as well as
functionality.
