Design Styles: A run down

Post Modern

Postmodernism is an eclectic style that emerged as a reaction to the rigidity of modernism in the latter half of the 20th century. This design approach celebrates diversity, rejects the notion of a universal aesthetic, and embraces various design elements and historical references.

Characteristics of Post Modern Design

  • Mix of bold colours, patterns & materials
  • Arches, curves and asymmetry, breaking away from the clean lines of Modernism
  • Explores a sense of irony & self awareness
  • Embodying freedom - encourages designers to experiment with unexpected combinations
  • Blurring the line between art and functionality
  • Imaginative spaces that are thought-provoking & rich in character
