Aspect of Form and Design

Design is an adaptation of features into form - be it anywhere. There two types of form which comes to my mind- one is with features and the other is without features. Now, you may say what is the difference between these two things? But it is the very difference which takes my thoughts from being practical to highly philosophical.

If you look around yourselves, you will find that everything has a form. Starting from your own hands - five fingers in each hands with specific reasons. The shape of chair you sit on, the brush you use to brush your teeth, the mobile you use to communicate and so on. All these human made forms are designed with every aspect of solving a problem.

On the other hand, there are certain forms which are featureless and don't solve any problems. Music and Art are one of these areas which I am referring too. Music is a form of your emotions and its an expression of your thoughts, similar goes to your art. But what is the whole purpose of these form?

Cymatic is a particular field of study that is trying to bring the visual form to sound. But what purpose would that form provide, beside the visual pleasure. Like energy, form can be converted from one to other. If you look into these images than you will find that these images find itself into a fractal community - the subject of randomess and chaos. I told you earlier that this is a featureless form or you can say in other words a pure form.

Nature in itself is a manifestation of energy into form, but for what purpose. But every natural form are efficient and beautiful at the same time. What triggers you when you look into these forms below.

Orderness, isn't it? Finding an impeccable order into chaos really triggers our inner self and makes us feel something strange. Millions of people confined in a limited space have resulted in a complex and yet organised society is an order in chaos. Our own economic system which is highly complicated in itself is an order in chaos. Similarly, our universe is an order in chaos.

Chaos is something we cannot comprehend, therefore even if its a randomly scattered stars in night, we have delicately grouped each one and have defined them. Its not only to define form but also create forms that we live to.

The theory of form and design is not limited to shapes and sizes but also to the ideology. Each one of us have their own view and thus there is a conflict between different ideology - this is chaos. That is why there is war which tries to bring this whole chaotic ideology into one form - one freedom, one democracy.

Every conversion between form requires a huge struggle - war is one of them. In case of practical problem solving its the struggling in the mind which tries to make sense of the chaos and bring out the solution. Problem solving in itself in an art of finding order in chaos - be it any problem.

Though the featureless forms introduces many philosophical problems, their importance cannot be undermined. But every form or design must be solving certain delicate problems be it building a house or painting your thoughts. Art may be the form or solution to the chaotic mind of ours.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev, for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtzand create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious.

So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256X 256X 256combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one.
Lets start with F-Cube: In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You)

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :)

But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared :
Sale Person: Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz?
Bald Person: (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time.
Sale Person: Here sir, do you want to by a comb? 
Bald Person : Can't you see I am bald? …

Passion and Flying

There is an interesting aspect of flying which grasps everyone's imagination. The freedom and the control of moving around the space without any obstacle is just too much to ask for, in one man's life :). Isn't it?

As a young kid like everyone, flying was a dream. Not to mention the great stories of Leonardo Da Vinci and the Wrights brothers, who not only dreamt but also went on designing one, would inspire you to believe that some day in future it would be possible to fly like a bird. So let me tell you a short story about myself where I took myself to some limit into achieving this. :) I have been wanting to tell this for a long time but never found any occasion or reason to do so.
It was long ago when I was still in grade 3/4, should be around 1993. Space Channel was just installed in our house and I would spend time watching cartoons and other science programs. That was when I noticed gliders and parachutes. The shear simplicity of the design took me by surprise. Just…
