The words of five artists and the whole world of web design
Pablo Picasso said that “Everything you can imagine is real”. It’s over forty years since he died, so we can assume he wasn’t referring to the internet! However, it might be interesting to look at some other quotes from famous artists in history, and how they might apply to a modern world of web design Waterlooville.
Leonardo da Vinci believed that: “A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light.” This could apply to the creation of a business website – potential customers are lost in darkness until you guide them into the light where they can see your world as you want them to.
Next comes Emile Zola, stating his view that: “If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” The designs you choose or create should make your products, services or business seem real to all those who view the message. You should be willing to show “out loud” what needs to be seen; say “out loud” what needs to be heard.
Let’s take a moment to disagree with Vincent van Gogh, at least in this context, when he offers: “I dream my painting and I paint my dream.” There can be a danger, when promoting a business, that your dream is different from the people you wish to attract and involve. If he was around today, maybe Vincent would “paint their dream” for you.
Finally, we turn to the Swiss artist Paul Klee. He thought that “One eye sees, the other feels.” If, when working on your designs, or assessing those that have been created for you, you make sure you use both of Paul’s eyes, you have the chance to end up with a more complete impression. Those who then see the finished work can better respond positively to it. And that’s what you really want from all the aspects of any designs that you use…
