Design as a form of art

There is the opinion that says that design is a form of art, while at the same time we all know that design has rules. And that applies to every kind of design. From architecture, to technical and from web design to nature’s awesomely designed rocks, design seems to follow patterns and rules that can be recognised.

However, art can be found within all designs. And that is because the human mind can create impeccable masterpieces that may or may not be based on design rules.

Artist Garip Ay from Turkey recreates a classic Vincent Van Gogh masterpiece, Starry Night, by painting on dark water. A creation so delicate that, even if it an other man’s original work, is a form of art on its own. We have to aknowledge and appreciate a great design and an impressive means to design, right?
