Art versus Design
Artists are singular, making art for themselves. Designers must solve the problem. Massimo Vignelli, who passed away yesterday, designed the NYC subway map in 1972 (on the right). It was replaced with another in 1979 (on the left). I remember my first trip to NY and using his map. Pure design.
