Book intrigue: It Is Beautiful Then Gone by Martin Venezky

Book intrigue: It Is Beautiful Then Gone

In my design mentor’s office there is a bookshelf of design volumes.  Early on I picked an interesting book out. Now when I have a little time to kill I stop by and grab this book to read another page.

Here’s a quote from today’s pass, about the diffence between “top-down” and “bottom-up” design.

“Our culture respects the stability and authority of the top- down world and needs the rebellion and immediacy of the bottom-up.”

This intersection of system and grassroots design is interesting, and perhaps an important key to prevent artists from despising other artists.
