Design Manifesto

Abri um Blog! Mais um, isto é. No entanto, passado tanto tempo, fiz a pazes com a Web (com a blogosfera) e agora é só ferramentas gratuitas! Viva o Google! Viva o Blogger! Vivam!…

Mas, devolta ao primeiro post, decidi abrir este blog com… Julia e Ellen Lupton!
http://www.design-your-life.org/manifesto.php

Detesto pessoas burras! Não que seja particularmente inteligente, mas… subscrevo completamente o manifesto das irmãs Lupton (dito assim até parece uma seita ou religião). Como muitas filosofias, Design Your Life tem um conjunto de princípios simples mas altamente ambiciosos de seguir num todo. A vantagem desta religião é que parte de uma pessoa, de uma designer consistente, que admiro muito.


About DYL
Ellen and Julia Lupton are designers, writers, mothers, teachers, and citizens who have worked in the specialized fields of design and literary studies over the past two decades…

Manifesto
Over the past fifteen years, the word “design” has been bandied about in the popular press, as designer jeans, designer teapots, and designer drugs have captured our imagination—if not our understanding. When we hear the word design, we often think of a sleekly styled product or a great piece of fashion or an attractively decorated room. We might also think of the professional designers who have been trained to create such objects or environments.

DESIGN YOUR LIFE is not about shopping or decorating. Nor is it about a caste of specialists endowed with mysterious talents and impenetrable secrets.

DESIGN YOUR LIFE is about thinking.
