Current goals[edit]

"List/Tag/Assess/Write/Maintain", that's our motto here!...




Note: Rationale for having a portal about Design (at large):

  • There once was a sketch for an Industrial Design portal: over a 3-year period, it was not brought up to speed;
  • On the other hand, there is a fully-operational Visual arts portal: but it does not cater especially (if at all) to the Design topic;
  • There is no Graphic design portal (although there is a Typography portal);
  • There is no Interior design portal (although there is an Architecture portal);
  • There are thousands of Wikipedia articles related to the topic of Design;
  • The conclusion of all of these facts is that having a separate Design portal is needed.
  • The Design portal should stick mostly to: Industrial design (about 1853 articles), Graphic design (174 articles + about 1000) and Interior design (about 932 articles) because...

    • Software design is already covered by the IT portal;
    • Urban/Environmental design is already covered by the Architecture portal;
