Design by the hands of Cosmic Capitanu
When I lay my eyes on well designed information I feel thankful. Information is naturally messy. If you are reading/using something and have to ask yourself “where to go now”, it is probably poorly designed. Here we contemplate the opposite: how everything is usually right and with exquisite execution in the work of Cosmin Capitanu.
Coherency is a fine effect of nice color sets, acquaintance may be conveyed by kindly paced forms, grace displayed by typography , breathing spaces may allow us to do just that: breath. Together it guides the reader into the privilege of choice. One may also take a step back to see the whole picture, contemplate a Renoir’s painting finally becoming the gun it is supposed to be. All art develops into tools, they are cocoons for innovation. New life, new solutions and new perspectives.
He is a Romanian architect, urban planner and designer. A professional with fine taste. This level of discernment he has, from my perspective, derives from the gift of sight. As I see, that gift is the capacity to understand coherence between form, color and space, and to be creative with it. The understanding process of it is a gut felling at first, developing into thought and speech much later.
Design built upon rhythm improves humanity. It makes possible energy efficient processes, better communication, cohesive communities, worldwide evolution. Events kickstarted into reality by the mighty hammer of artistic accomplishment. Rhythm is the systematic arrangement of data over time and/or space. Lines, angles, sounds, colors or events may define patterns via rhythmic arrangements. Science is built upon these systems: pattern organized information is assumed logic, thus truth. An aways predictable sunset and sunrise, the predictable mother-son bondage, even math it self and eloquent example.
Last I heard from his online profile, he was working for Adobe Inc., which is a fine match for both. The lastest software I got from adobe, the Xd, was an improvement from previous ones by a large margin. I could say it has his visual fingerprint are all over it, but that is just me connecting the dots.
