What is the difference between Art and Design? Why has this theme been debated for a long time?
From time to time, we hear people use words "art" and "design" as if they were synonyms. But, basically, we should not confuse this two terms because they are not the same.
Art and design are different. The differences lie not so much in how they look as in what they do: They have different purposes and audiences, they are made differently and judged by different criteria.
