Assignment 4

   The reason why key elements are lacking in art of the past is because they are color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value. There are different types of art such as visual, fine, animation, graphic, culinary, and etc. The subject art has existed for many decades and comes in all forms from shapes and sizes, and years. However, the purpose of art can also be political, spiritual or philosophical ideas, to create a sense of beauty to explore the nature of perception, for pleasure, or to generate strong emotions. Art is an act of expressing feelings, thoughts, and observations.


     In the article “Typophoto” by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy”, “ typography was for the first time seen not as an isolated discipline and technique, but in context with the ever-widening visual experiences that the picture symbol, photo, film, and television brought”.  The term typography, is the art or procedure of arranging type or processing data and printing from it. However, typography was used in many ways. Such as, adjusting the text within the design while creating powerful content. It provides an attractive appearance and preserves the aesthetic value of your content. Typography attracts readers attention, gives medium communication, It conveys a certain mood or feeling and it establishes an information hierarchy.


       Education should teach artists that the idea is up to them to choose the type of ideas that they want you to do. We should also learn as beginners which bring back the more traditional aspects that the Bauhaus was influenced from, the arts and crafts movement. Also, the design disciplines together as opposed to separately which was the more traditional way of doing it. It is a good idea to communicate with people in the same field as you so it can help you to network and get connections throughout the long run. 

      The ideas should be important for the 21st century art and design is typography because we can use it in many ways such as social media, photos, posters, and text. Good typography can make people write better, allowing the reader to focus on the substance behind the written word.   On Typography by Herbert Bayer “new concepts will not grow on mere design variations of long-established forms such as the book. the aesthetic restraint that limits the development of the book must finally be overcome, and new ideas must logically be deduced from the function of typography and its carriers.”  Using new ideas can help us to have a better artwork, and a better idea to promote our artwork.

The reason why Rudimentary communication methods are relevant when it comes to contemporary information systems is because designers today create and communicate has quietly thrust universality back into the foundation of our work. Technology is empowering a new collectivist, in order to understand how this crucial design concept is evolving. However, we need to take a look at how it initially emerged.

Contemporary designers concern themselves when it comes to writing or techniques. A form of expression was working for pictures and videos. Although, directed craft objects that are both tools for design and tools for exploration towards a number of projects, spanning a decade, centered on self-identity and personal significance. The punctuation was used individually to spread grammatical and typographical standards prior to printing throughout region to region.

What provokes new ideas are the typeface Helvetica, generation after generation, yet nearly anyone living in a literate, urbanized part of the world has seen this typeface or characters inspired by it. In the reading “Graphic Design Theory by Helen Armstrong” Design is a social activity, which is rarely working alone or in private. Besides working alone or in private, as designers were able to communicate with clients, audiences, publishers, institutions, and collaborators. While our work is exposed and highly visible. As individuals we often remain anonymous, our contribution to the texture of daily life existing below the threshold of public recognition.

What distinguishes semiology from linguistics is that we have already drawn the line. We determine the exact place of semiology which is the task of the psychologist. But the task of the linguist is to find out what makes language a special system within the mass of semiological data. Although, it is distinct from linguistics despite the points of contact between the two sciences and mutual services that they provide.

During our everyday language we use signs by communicating with people. Language is a physical form, no less so than speaking; and this is a help in our study of it. Linguistic signs, though basically psychological, are not abstractions; associations which bear the stamp of collective approval. The subject matter of linguistics comprises all manifestations of human speech, whether that of savages or civilized nations, or of archaic, classical or decadent periods. In general communication, Language is checked not only by the weight of the collect but also by time.

As of language, graphic communication, and visual arts are related, considering language in time, without the community of speakers. Imagine an isolated individual Uving for several centuries. Although, we probably would notice no change and time would not influence language. Conversely, if we considered the community of speakers without considering time. We would not see the effect of the social forces that influence language. It changes in time takes many forms, on any one of which an important chapter in linguistics might be written.

Assignment 3

As we get older technology tends to change everyday and makes it easier for everybody. There’s some people that are old school and still do not keep up with technology. For an example, it’s difficult for my parents and my family to keep up with technology since they grew up in an older generation where technology did not exist and do take care of almost everything in person such as paying the bills physically, shopping in person. The only thing that existed for them to use technology is a flip phone or a house phone that has a cord. On the other hand, there’s people that don’t use technology the proper way such as using it for illegal things, or posting inappropriate things.

According to the article, Our Book by El Lissitzky. “The hieroglyph is international: that is to say, if a Russian, a German, or an American impresses the symbols (pictures) of the ideas on his memory, he can read Chinese or Egyptian (silently), without acquiring a knowledge of the language, for language and writing are each patterns in themselves.” The writing is completely different compared to English, Spanish, Italian, German, and French. What makes it unique is that not a lot of people are able to visualize different languages besides English and Spanish. The progress of the letter in relation to the hieroglyph is relative.

The author in Constructivist Manifesto emphasized these things because he wanted to utilize Graphic Design as a profession to bring society. Also, He was really big on social issues and supported the use of technology, design and industrialism to fix society for the better. Besides as a designer, he was as an engineer and inventor as well. As designers we have a potential to utilize the skills much better compared to people in the older generations. Since people in this generation and other potential generations have better tools and better technology.

In the article, The Futurist Manifesto Filippo by Tommaso Marinetti. These artists anticipated the art and design that would follow is that they are Truly identical in their sinister juxtaposition of bodies that do not know each other. However, public dormitories where you sleep side by side forever with beings you hate or do not know. The Reciprocal violence of the painters and sculptors who murder each other in the same museum with blows of line and color.

The ideas where the authors might separate is that technology sometimes forgets people how to do things physically and visually such as reading stuff in a newspaper, communicating with people more in person, watching the news more often, learning off a textbook, etc.
