Understanding of Design: Through Malaysian Eyes
Malaysia is situated between Thailand and Indonesia. The exchange of movement and migration by people of these country are common.
Culture are infused with some similarities between the neighboring borders. But, it only ends at the border, the 3 nation differ with diverse culture, tradition and heritage.
My observation and understanding of design in Malaysia begins with a brief history search of Malay culture which dates back to the third or fourth century. The first written communication (graphic and communication) artifact is a stone inription relic, proving that Islam has reached East Malay Peninsular in early 14th century.
Crafts in Malaysia started as early as the 14th century, where artisans worked under the patronage of the ruling classes, decorating palaces and regal attires. During this period, artisans and craftsman were not allowed to express, but rather copy their works of art dictated by strict aesthetic and religious structure by their patrons.
It is only until the early 16th century when the Portuguese came to the Malay Peninsular, which was followed by the British in the 17th century that western influence reached here.
During the rule of the British Empire, the British brought western influence of industrialization. They also brought in the Chinese and Indians along with their diverse culture.
Over the years through colonization, and the infusion of the 3 main races, Malaysia has become what it is today. A Melting pot.
Pre independence : Crafts based on local knowledge.
Post independence : Graphic communication and industrial design
Industrialization in Malaysia :
