Why design is important

Why design is important

Fast Company released an article this week discussing an animation that shows kids (and adults, in my opinion!) the importance to design in our world (all design, not just graphic design).


How do you get young people thinking about design? Such a task requires first explaining what design is, exactly, which can be tricky even for adults to grasp. The meaning of design is made delightfully simple in “Shape,” a wordless six-minute animation designed and directed by Johnny Kelly forPivot Dublin, a Dublin City Council initiative that applies design thinking to city planning.


This was a great animation–be sure to check it out!
