Breaking Design Rules

By: Jimmy Gramblin at Organi Studios

Submitted on Mon, Aug 21st, 2006 12:00 am

Design is one of life's greatest oxymorons. Design is an art form, but the craft must be learned or, at least, techniques in the craft perfected. Then, when it is mastered, it becomes a true art form -something that can be manipulated by the designer and formed into his own innovation. But to create things that are truly innovative, one cannot limit oneself creatively, or they are not creating something new, but simply re-creating or copying. Thus, the oxymoron comes to life in that you must know the rules to be able to successfully break them.

This is what separates awe-inspiring designers from mainstream designers. One re-creates what he or she has been taught; the other allows their imagination to generate a totally new, innovative creation of design.
