Practice, Called Design

Nowadays there is no visual form to fully reflect the world. Neither film, nor fine arts, or television, or advertisement can express the reality; they themselves are the reality, the reality where lives contemporary human being.
When speaking about graphic design, we do not mean the depicting of things, but the means of their appearance. Practice, which we call design, neither describes, nor tells us about anything; Design shows it’s own self and thus provides us with the reality of the world.
By creating an image, designer expresses existing surroundings, i.e. – life around us.
