Craft as Design

06 October 2008

I’m going to apologize for my complete lack of posting on here. I should be a much better participant in the community of design as a whole and part of that is being able to blog here. This fact becomes especially apparent when I look around where I sit and see a ring inspiring of books, papers, sketches, and photocopies that could be shared.  So, with that being said…

From Whittling and Woodcarving by E.J. Tangerman, First published in 1936

Alot of what has grown to inspire me is very much rooted in the midwestern craft tradition; sewing, needlework, kitschy projects, quilting, and so on. These hobbies share many of the same principles of graphic design; color, composition, line, pattern, geometry, organization of information, collage, etc. I think what most intrigues me about craft as design or design as craft is the fusion of old techniques with new ideas and new forms, but I want to see it pushed beyond Papier-mâché and Cross-stitch.
