You know how different situations can have the same result and how we mainly tend to focus on that result other than the situation as a guideline for our next action?
For example in Geographical Location 1, lives girl called Mary and in Geographical Location 2 lives a boy named Liam. Both Mary and Liam were called by their parents respectively and both did not respond to the call. If this was a movie, probably some of the audience would say that the two children are disobedient because they seem to hear the call but do not make the tiniest effort to respond. Turns out that Mary was the one who intentionally ignored her parent’s call while Liam has a severe ear problem that his parent knew nothing about.
Good (insert appropriate time of day according to your location here),
This year I learnt a very important word. I actually thought there was no name for it though I have been seeing that word many..many…many times, since like six years ago, but I only got to understand what it means this year.
I happened to tell my ten year old brother “Once upon a time you had (insert something valuable)*…and now you don’t.”
Then he told me:
“That is not a good story because it does not explain what happened to the (something valuable)*
what a smart comeback bro! In my head I was like “True true”
My story lacked..(drum roll please)…
What is context?
Context: the circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement or idea and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.
Context is the main ingredient of everything – it is a universal ingredient. It is as important as the twist in literature. Context is what sets apart right from wrong, or Right (for a situation) from right (for a different situation). It is what gives meaning to a situation by setting it apart from another situation that seems similar.
Context is the foundation of everything. Since it is a very wide subject, I would really like to read what context means for you in the comment section below. You never know who your comment may end up helping.
why we eat what we eat
why we dress what we dress
why we behave the way we do
why we use the words we use
why we know what we know
When designers are creating something for a client, they have to consider the client’s needs/context (which is the primary source), then use their context (what they know) while designing it. This is why two designers, even though designing the same thing for the same client, can not have identical outputs.
Thank you for your support so far.
