to plan and organize
it is the opposite o chance.
When we say,
“it happen by design”
we mean something was planned.
esign is inherent in the ull range o artdisciplines. People in all occupationsplan, but the artist or designer plans thearrangements o elements to orm a visualpattern. The arts are called creative eldsbecause the arts don’t have predeterminedcorrect answers to problems. This is not thecase in the eld o graphic design becausegraphic designers are given a problem withspecic options and dened limitations. Thecreative aspect o art also includes the oten-heard phrase
“there are no rules in art”
Sure,this is true, there are no absolutes. However
no rules doesn’t imply that all designs areequally valid and visually successful.
Artisticpractices and criteria have been developedrom successul works o which and artist ordesigner should be aware. Thus guidelinesnot rules will assist in the creation o designs,but doesn’t mean that the artist is limited toany specic solution. The elements and prin-ciples o design are the oundation used tocreate a work o art or design.
It didn’t occuby accident.
