Design is commonly considered to be a surface attribute, and generally speaking, what distinguishes a ‘design’ object from an ordinary one is not necessarily its function, but its appearance (and of course the price tag that comes with it). In Works That Work we aim to present a less rarefied definition of design by focusing on the actual impact of objects and ideas on their users. Our stories are not about how designers can make their works more stylish, but about how their works can make our lives better.
Catalogue of an accompanying exhibition of the 22nd International Biennale of Graphic Design Brno 2006. The exhibition critically questions possibilities of organising graphic design exhibitions today, and documents reactions of invited designers.
