Defining Art From Design


One of the most complex debates for many years is the difference between art and design. When it comes to their work, designers and artists are producers of visual compositions. The only difference that they have different reasons why they do what they do. Designers are using many medium while artists create their artworks on canvas art. There are designers who categorize themselves as artists but it is rare to hear of an artist thinking themselves as designers.

The main difference between art and design is that good art is able to inspire people while good design is able to motivate – this all points to the fact that their purpose are not the same. With art, the process begins from scratch such as a blank canvas. The artist creates art coming from their feelings, opinions or views. The artwork is created in order to relay to other people what they are feeling and with hope that others might be inspired by it. The most popular artworks these days are those that show the strongest emotional connection between the viewer and the artist.

In the case of designers, they have a chosen starting point before they set out doing their work. It can be in the form of an idea, message or an image. The designer does not create something new but they want to relay something that is already in existence with a purpose in mind. Designers have a goal of motivating the audience such as enticing them to purchase products and services, to visit a place or to relay information.

Second difference between art and design is that good art is created to be interpreted by the viewers while designs are created to be understood. Artworks can be interpreted in many ways while a design is created in order to motivate people to do one thing. One can decided on how good a canvas art is based on their taste while design can be judged based on people’s opinion. A person who knows how to create good art is considered to be talented while someone who makes good design is deemed as skillful.

The Effects Of Color Variance In The General Appeal Of A Website


Many websites nowadays are trying to stick to a set of colours to use a minimalistic approach in their web design. These colours are generally the set of colours that most designers these days have fallen in love with, the minimalistic set that was created by Google for one of its Android operating systems. This set uses various tones of colours that are discretely separated from each other on a colour scale such as the RGB scale or the CMYK scale. Designers prefer to use these colours as some of them act as natural secondary colours to certain brighter primary shades. This allows them to efficiently usecolours for the webpages.

Following this pattern is the website for solar panels on the Gold Coast, Green Spark, which tries to maintain a minimalistic approach to its colour gamut. Adhering to its namesake, it tries to us green colours to spruce up the elements of this webpage. The background is kept clean with a white shade, and with certain regions being grayed out to give it a more important feel, such as the header or the sub headers. However, when it comes to the use of the green colour, they have used at least 6 different colours of green which are all distinctly separated from each other on the colour scale. They have tried to exhibit a certain type of foliage at the top of their page, to emphasize that their website is for the use of green technologies such as solar panels on the Gold Coast for the betterment of the human race as well as the conservation of Earth. For this they use the colours of leaves in the seasons of Spring and Summer.

The other green colours on use in the website are for the menu bar, and the submit button. They have also used the green colour as a sort of highlighter to bring out the effect of certain words. For example, the words Quick Quote have been made green to highlight them, so that customers of their website are attracted to it and will hence be drawn to it to get a quote. Effectively using the different variety of green colours, this website had kept its elements interesting and fresh.
