Here is an example from the School of Design you find by keeping your eyes open.
Susan says, “There is so much power in this photograph. The colors, textures, shapes and layout all add up to an impressive design. Good design, whether accidental, natural, or composed, will make you stop and admire. Lucia will have to tell you whether this design is accidental – comprised of stuff hung up willy-nilly without purpose or intent, but I think this is one of the strongest design statements I’ve seen in a while. It is of and about lumber and lumbering. Made of wood that has been roughly worked by the weather and by the tools of the timber trade. The tools, battered and scarred by their years of service are nailed up like fearsome toothed discs. You don’t come across such remarkable design work often, but it is there. Look for it. Learn from it. And use the lessons in your presentation.”
Lucia says, “I really don’t know if this was accidental. It certainly didn’t look that way. All the elements looked to have been place with extreme care. The wall was so well composed that all I had to do was frame the photo. Susan’s description of this design says it all. Everything to depict the sawmill is done to perfection. Even the ‘Miller Lumber’ looks as if it were cut from a steel saw. Who would have thought the exterior of a sawmill could display such exceptional design. Susan is right, good design is out there for you to see, even in the most unlikely places. Keep you eyes open. The ideas are everywhere.”
