“Everything that is not made by nature is designed by someone,” is a sick way of re-looking at design. As a christian, thinking of this in the sense that God designed and not just the world, but the entire universe is pretty psyching. Heck, the article also mentions another quote by Kidd saying, “whether you realize it or not, most of the decisions you make, every day, are by design.” Ima be completely honest here, I don’t know what this kid is talking about here, but once I figure it out, I know it’ll be a pretty mind-blowing experience.

In the article, Kidd says that, “graphic design is a cerebral experience, not a physical one.” Kidd goes on some more, and begins to talk about graphic design as a head trip, from your eyes to your mind. When I first read this, I thought Kidd was the one tripping. By the way, this man definitely did psychedelics.

Besides attempt at figuring out what the heck Kidd is talking about, just looking at the pictures in the article, gives it away. Everything is design. Personality, designed by yourself and those you surround yourself around. This computer, the couch I am laying on, the TV, everything literally everything. But, one thing that came to my head is something I heard a little over a year ago. Who invented it? Seriously though, who invented it? I guarantee, you can’t name the person that invented Laptops. The thing, you’re probably using to read this, if you are.

Any I am so off topic, but I’m gonna end this reflection there. Uhhh, goodbye and don’t forget to breath. Luv

“Who invented it?” in an interesting question, because it kind of implies that it was one person’s idea. Alan Kay had the idea of a laptop with the Dynabook, something he says hasn’t been invented yet. But design, art, culture and technology don’t come from a vacuum. They build on and remix existing works and ideas. And that mirrors a lot of what we do in this class.

    I never thought of it that way. I’ll have to do some research on Alan Kay because if I read this correctly it is true. We may have an idea right now, like a flying car or, but we don’t have the technology or knowledge to achieve that invention yet.
