Paradoxes of Design

by Julia Hummel

I came across the post going over the paradoxes of design. I read through them and realized how important they are. They were written with a different approach and insight which widened my understanding. Although I have not been out in the real world designing yet, I can see where these paradoxes would become a design beatitude to follow to live a fulfilling happy design life. Adrian Shaughnessy is a graphic designer based in london and shone light on the paradoxes of graphic design in one of his lectures, the illustrations were later made. Together, makes for an interesting way to communicate important messages. Please view the other 11 paradoxes here.
