Designing History

Over the past few months we have explored the basic concepts and elements of design. We have moved from one to the other as they evolve line a dot into a line and later into a shaped or volume. But none of this is new because they have been around for hundreds of years.

Design and art have evolved from primitive drawings on walls to marvels of the ancient world into the iconic structures that we know today.

All designers are part of history by either recreating it and being inspired by the past or by creating new styles and trends that leave a mark.

Let's time travel through the periods that shaped the design world have influenced our clothes, our homes and everything else we enjoy today. Let's enjoy those times when things were intricately decorated or simply austere. Let's go on a trip and discover what passed to see what's coming next!

Have a great day and hope you time travel with me next Tuesday!
