Good design stands by itself, without explanations or apologies. It represents the fulfilment of a successful process in all its beauty.
If by simplifying you’ve lost clarity, you haven’t simplified.
As a designer, your life is spent looking at things made by others, and how you can improve it. It becomes your nature; it becomes you.
@peterhry Correct. To be clear, ‘macro’ meant entire cities and ‘micro’ meant things like spoons and cutlery.
Architects care for the macro while designers take care of the micro. Both affect our lives and both require the same discipline.
The correct shape is the shape of the object’s meaning. Everything has its own order.
The paper and I will go away, but a good idea will last forever.
To me, design is a mission to prevent bad design from taking place. Better design for a better world.
