Poster for Typography day 2017 themed 'Beauty Form and Function'
Coexistence is a state of being together in a space. A good design is characterized by the fact that form and function always co-exist. One is followed by the other. In Louis Sullivan's words, ' Form follows function.' This principle says that the shape or 'form' of object should be majorly based upon its intended 'function' or purpose. Where function does not change, form does not change. Things organic and inorganic or things physical and metaphysical, it is the law that 'form ever follows function.'
In this poster, the same principle has been represented - 'Co-existence of form and function in design.' The two solid F's in the poster that merge into one solid form is the manifestation of the idea that form and function is correlative. Not only is it shown that they are two sides of the same coin, but also are they interwoven, representing the fact that form and function go together.
It is said that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. And I would like to believe, as in this case, that the concept of beauty in objects is justified with the right correlation of form and function.
