Class ExpressiveDesign

Name: ExpressiveDesign
Definition: Performative entity that has the main function of conveying a message between people.
Is abstract: Yes
Aspects:
Comments: Expressive designs may be intentionally created or emerge more or less unintentionally. In either case, expressive designs are based on universal expression phenomena, that is, basic expressive phenomena that appear in every culture and every time: natural language, sound, gestures and forms. This classification is only related to the expression vehicle being used and does not consider the specific manner in which the expressive design is rendered on a material medium; for example, a language design could be just oral, be written down or be preserved as an audio recording. These specific rendering modes of a design on a medium constitute representations and are dealt with separately.
