Design Thursday #10 · Technology's influence on contemporary Graphic Design

PRINT - DIGITAL - FUTURE

Tadas Karpavičius · Graphic Designer and Art Director

cycle: Design pages · free entrance for members

Thanks to various applications, we can easily calculate how much time we spend in real life, and how much - in the virtual. The latter more often wins. While in the real life we are dependent on the surrounding architectural spaces, everything we see when “looking around” on the Internet is design.

Technology affects every design discipline, creates new demands, causes changes. When creating the design, we must adapt to the most commonly used technological tools and formats. In the context of the world in a rush people want to understand everything instantly, so the design must be easy to learn and intuitive.

The future makes design a great puzzle we need to solve, providing a simple, useful and visually appealing result. This is the goal at which the largest creative forces are aimed at.

- by T.K.
