in a past life i was a blog

I’m recently watched Objectified, a doc about objects and design. I’ve been waiting, wanting to watch this and sit in my room for ages.

Me, my bed, my gadgets; laptop, camera, flipcam, phone, monitor, sketchbook, reading book, memory cards, usb/wall charger. Objects of my affection. The whole time I’m thinking about web and design, blogging and user interaction, activity.

“a big part of who you are as a designer is the way you look at the world”

This is also a big part of what makes a good blogger, the ability to show the world how you see it through a different perspective. Taking something and designing it to be interesting.

“when you see an object, you make so many assumptions about that object”

The movie is artistic and filled with industrial design, computer technology, ergonomics, materials, form, connecting, analog, digital, spoon, chair, shape, look, feel. Making gadgets  better.  Making things user friendly.

“improve the way people do things without them really knowing or thinking about it”

“users react very positively when things are clear and understandable”

What are you saying in your header,  the way your blog/website move, images, widgets, pages, reading, writing, categories, colours, links. themes. There’s so many things to think about, so many opportunities to show creativity in detail, design.

phases of modern design

  1. formal logic or the object
  2. symbolism, content, rituals, cultural symbolism
  3. contextual sense, technological, human/object relationships

“everything that has ever filled your world had been designed”

“every object tells a story, it depends how you look at it.”
