What
 is
 Modern
 Design?
 
Step
 1
 

Q1)
 How
 does
 Marcus
 define
 the
 meaning
 of
 design?
 How
 has
 its
 meaning
 changed
 and
 why?
 
 
Marcus
 defines
 ‘Design’
 as
 encompassing
 all
 of
 the
 objects
 that
 surround
 us;
 the
 clothes
 we
 wear,
 the
 
products
 we
 use
 or
 the
 media
 we
 interact
 with.
 Marcus
 explains
 the
 dictionary
 meaning
 of
 design
 as
 a
 
sketch
 or
 concept;
 he
 disagrees
 with
 this,
 as
 he
 believes
 design
 is
 an
 inclusive
 value-­‐free
 term,
 which
 
can
 be
 applied
 to
 the
 majority
 of
 things
 we
 use
 and
 see
 in
 the
 world.
 

 
2)
 What
 is
 the
 Good
 Design
 movement
 as
 he
 explains
 it
 and
 what
 does
 he
 perceive
 to
 be
 the
 
problems
 with
 it
 for
 us
 today?
 
The
 good
 design
 movement
 was
 a
 mid
 twentieth
 populist
 movement
 that
 attempted
 to
 bring
 products
 
with
 an
 economical,
 no-­‐nonsense,
 modernist
 aesthetic
 to
 ordinary
 households.
 Good
 design
 was
 based
 
on
 ideas
 that
 had
 originated
 in
 mid
 nineteenth
 century
 England
 where
 reformers
 advocated
 a
 simple
 
utilitarian
 approach
 to
 the
 creation
 of
 everyday
 products.
 They
 did
 this
 as
 an
 alterative
 to
 the
 
elaborately
 decorated
 mass-­‐produced
 goods
 the
 industrial
 revolution
 made
 possible.
 
As
 the
 twentieth
 century
