    Welcome to the endless debate of what art is, Kant defines art as “a kind of representation that is purposive in itself and, though without an end, nevertheless promotes the cultivation of the mental powers for sociable communication”.

    I think that since design has a purpose we can't really call it an art form, and we can actually judge design by how well it achieves its end.

      Couldn't agree more, people seem to be far too romantic about design here (at least going by these comments). If you want to be an artist and express yourself to the universe by all means go ahead, but leave it at the door, design is about function first and foremost.
