Getting a Handle on Design

I’m excited to see Gary Hustwit’s documentary about industrial design “Objectified.” Gary’s film “Helvetica” was insightful and extremely interesting. Objectified seems similar to Helvetica, in that it makes people aware that everything around us has been designed and has a history of development. My dad said to me once “it’s strange how I forget that everything was designed by someone” It’s true though, we are surrounded by so much stuff, we often block it all out and take it for granted. Read the New York Times review by Stephen Holden.
