“I’ve often noticed that we are not able to look at what we have in front of us, unless it’s inside a frame.”

Abbas Kiarostami – Iranian film director, screenwriter, poet, photographer, and film producer

I understand the need for a filmmaker to create a frame; their purpose is to capture what they need inside the constraints that the screen dictates. What they don’t do is create the frame at the start of their process. The frame is the delivery channel, not the design channel.

When you’re designing learning, how much is being done with the final frame in mind?
