Uncreative Design

Reading Response Questions for Week 4

1. Why is it so difficult to see the potential in uncreative ideas? Why are we typically forced to materialize them in order to understand their potential fully? Is simplicity not idealized in our mind’s eye?

2. Should we, as designers, spend more time thinking about how to create visual languages for future computers (or people) to parse, in a similar vain as what Bök has been doing with literature?

3. With the incredible amount of accessibility we have to things living on the internet, has the perceived value of content become diminished? In general, do we now value working with quantity over quality content?
