The obsession about perfection is common amongst graphic designers. They grow into it long before they become designers; ever since they learn how to draw inside the lines as kids. They become even more into it when they learn how to work with typography or grids.
The discipline of graphic design is built upon many rules that guide a designer toward making consistent work. Based on the elements of type, image, and composition. But, does this orientation to “perfection” limit the potentials of design and its various languages?
This thesis is a design meditation on the ideas of perfection and imperfection in form-making. It consists of a set of experimental projects that create visual instances and experiences of perfect and imperfect visual elements. These projects are reflexively assessed as to the insights they provide about the nature of designing form in relation to perfection.
