Reading Response

Why was the idea of the ‘default’ this week so difficult to create?

How has the idea of default become part of graphic design culture? Or culture in general? Is it something people think has no merit?

Is default somehow dehumanized?

Rob Giampietro writes, “The problem is not that Default Systems are bad and haven’t been opposed. The problem is that not even designers really understand what they mean. And that problem—along with the irresponsibility that it suggests—is far worse.” DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY MEAN?
