Design vs Art

Design vs Art

We’ve been talking a bit about designing for a purpose vs designing just to create art. I though the website of the Milwaukee Police (http://www.milwaukeepolicenews.com/#menu=home-page) that I cam across was a pretty interesting example of where the line becomes blurred. You can’t get more utilitarian than a city police website. Yet there is so much to the design that it obviously far surpasses any design required to convey the message. When you go so far beyond that point it almost feels like it could cross into art territory.
