Craft got a renaissance, since new designs made-up with computer technology. However, work little in the physical world. Suddenly Craft people getting interested and awakening. The childish plays, for example, “simple wooden printing letter sets” get attention. Designers experimenting with new materials outside known territory or ground “digital spheres”, it becomes discoveries mixed with knowledge of technology, create new, hand-made, one-offs products. Sometimes referred to ass the Internet of Thing.
Often without a simple technological approach. Craft people like hands create. The tool is a rediscovery of a lost tradition of artisans – The incredible creatives power more manifest concrete products, not only abstracts zeroes and ones in the computer language.
The Macramé of Resistance
As digital technology increasingly dominates the creation and production of graphic design, a growing number of designers are looking instead to the physical act of making. They are incorporating a sense of the handmade into new technology or putting such technology aside altogether to explore older production methods like letterpress printing. In “The Macramé of Resistance,” Lorraine Wild positions craft as central to a “designer’s voice.” For craft suggests a crucial knowledge acquired through making. She argues that this kind of experience, in addition to more verbal, conceptual approaches, must “form the foundation of a designer’s education and work.”
Craft is rediscover
Craft is often associated with the resurgence of ornament in the design community, as well as the broader DIY movement. It is how punk culture rediscovered ways to make music without really be able to play instruments very good. The same principle makes great art without being educated as an artist. It’s all about the insensitive, collaboration ship, experimentation and experimentation that brings greatness alive. A good musician cannot under any circumstances make an “OK song” into a great song.even if he uses London symphony orchestra or great vocals or studios to improve it. It still will not become any better. See also DIY, the DIY movement, 3-printing, silk printing
