The Power of Design

May/Jun 2019

Order Magazine

In our current main focus “The Power of Design” we trace the concept of power throughout design. Power doesn’t always have an effect where and as we expect it to. After all, it isn’t only the powerful who wield power, it can also be used against them. When power is placed openly in someone’s hand, it often remains ineffective. On the other hand, designers can use it to influence users without them even realising it. Power is concealed not least in photography, which at one time was supposed to merely mirror reality.

The Power of Design

Text: Stephan Ott

Translation: Emily J. McGuffin

“We must learn more”, states Hartmut Esslinger in the interview we conducted with him on the occasion of frog design’s 50th anniversary. That seems like an innocent enough sentence, one likely to whoosh inconsequentially past those who are focused solely on the generation of interest on social media.

Posters, a medium which had previously been conceived largely in static terms, are now being designed with movement in mind, above all in the university landscape and in the cultural sector.

Objects are not inherently photogenic; instead they are rendered attractive via the process of being photographed. Thanks to Instagram, this process has become an everyday ritual and is changing the way we look at things, what we buy, and what we eat.

In the shadow of a supposedly intact world of white New Yorkers, a queer community emerges that, even if it wanted to, does not fit into the bigoted picture.
