    I’m sorry man but you’re way off. Logos, posters etc. have to serve very specific purpose. If you don’t manage to create a strong, recognisable logo mark you have failed. If you don’t design a poster that conveys the information it should what’s the point? Art is a lot more harder to judge since it’s always an expression of the artist and open for interpretation.

      Really? So, random photorealistic portrait or random brush stroke is art but an expressive typographic or illustrated poster is just an informational medium. The new generation of designers obviously does not know enough about the history of design.

        It depends on the intention of the creative process and the purpose of the thing created. But the line between art and design is blurry and cannot be defined objectively. Look for Dadaism to explore this topic further.

        But as a rule of thumb, I would also recommend to not equate design with art - it would not do service to either.

          This. I imagine the debate has been going on for decades as I distinctly remember when I started my career in the early 2000s, we were all debating "but is it art?" regarding Joshua Davis' or David Carson's work.
