7 Target Market/ Who would use the design? Writing about designs is different to writing about artwork because designs should have a function; they should work. Designs have a job to do, a use, a purpose. When you are looking at design think about trying it on or using it. If you dont think the design is for you, think who it has been designed for. Who would use this design? Who would want to use the design and why would they be attracted to it? Who would pay money to use it? You must fully describe this person and give reasons why they would use it – Age group, male/female, job, wealth, interests, physical features. Think what qualities, personality and needs they have. Describe specific parts or qualities the design has and why this would be good for the person who would use it. Next, think about parts of the design which the person would not like or make it difficult for them to use. Think about all the different types of people in the world and what design would suit them -

29 Title – Dylan Function – Poster promoting a new Bob Dylan Album. A copy of the poster was included with the album. Graphic Designer – Milton Glazer Materials/Process – Screen Print Date - 1967 Design Essay/ Graphic design - Posters This silhouette cut-out by Marcel Duchamp was in the back of my mind when I created the Dylan poster. In addition to the Duchamp silhouette, the other significant graphic element in this piece is the quality, shape, and color of the hair. In some ways these elements were influenced by my interest in Islamic painting. This particular piece is probably the most familiar of my works, if only for the fact that nearly six million were produced for enclosure in a Dylan album. One day a French photographer visited the studio and told the following story: He was on assignment traveling up the Amazon and stopped in a village of about one hundred Indians. He entered a hut and, as his eyes grew accustomed to the darkness, he saw the Dylan poster on the wall. He never was able to find out how it got there.
