The Big Designers #1

The Big Designers

By, Afua Osei-Bonsu

The big designers in life very well may be three things 1)necessity, 2)war and 3)just because we could.

“Necessity” it has been said was utilized by Chinese manufacturers and marked the focus of early eras in design and engineering. Underneath the helm of “necessity” most of design falls out.

“War” is another design pioneer that inspires a lot of technologies and teachings.

The third big designer is “just because we could,” that has to do with things like dinosaurs that apparently may have been whimsy of early scientists and according to one scientist, dinosaurs may still be existence on some far off planets.

Still other things in life become big designers such as those things that shape us and inspire change. Perhaps big designers  4) are the “shapers,” like policy, taxation systems, popular culture,  politics, poverty, education etc.

Moving on to the current century with most of necessity completely in existence, a new big designer may be #5) “Secondary Concept” where you make a dress from for example  a sugar bowl, which becomes the secondary design when you look in a former design-in and around it and using deconstruction.

Another big designer is the constant drive to evolve, #6 is evolution.  Evolution inspired most of innovation.  The notch and notch way that one inches upwards using research and development creates innovation formulas and new propelling designs.  With every technology it is as if, we can now achieve this xyz therefore the following must also be possible, and the designer takes a step, then still another step connecting all the dots.  If one can fly, they can place the star on top of the giant tree, if one can vapor they may perform a heart transplant without incision.

Of course we design and redesign necessity in a constant.
