The difference between design and art

Answered => “Who are the best logo designers?” on Quora.

=> My answer…

Plenty of good/great suggestions. I’ve got nothing to add in that regard.

However, while I don’t want to get too off topic the only thing I believe is worth adding is this: if anyone shows you work without specifying the context (i.e., brand’s target, objective, market, industry, etc.) then cast your selection vote elsewhere.

The evaluation of great design can not happen without having an understanding of the context. I’ll creep out on a limb a bit and say that context is the difference between design and art.
