Are design and content interdependent?


Are design and content interdependent ? If yes, how can you justify it ?


Could you give an example? This sounds interesting. I want to make sure I understand.

At first glance though, I’d say they are interdependent.


It depends on how you define design I suppose. To me, design is about solving problems (for a target audience, in a given context of use). I’d argue that content is very important - it’s important in the sense that if you start by defining the content first, it’ll make the visual design aspects much easier to do. However I’d say a pre-requisite to know whether the content is right or not is to understand the goals, the users and the context of use.

Hope that makes it clearer…
