Design is a field of visual art that has always been open to various diverse forms of expression, with the incorporation of various different design element and design media, no less. Through the history of design we have seen various different ways and approaches creative designers have taken in the process of the implementation and execution of creative ideas and concepts in their execution of design.

This is true not only in terms of approaches that are now made available to use due to advancements in technology such as digital art and software manipulation for example, but also with regard to the concepts and visual elements adopted by designers to communicate their design – seeing design in new and unconventional ways.
