“The first and perhaps only inviolable rule of design is that everything flows from the goal. Design without a goal isn’t even art. It’s just nonsensical self-indulgence.”
My friend Martin posted a great article via Twitter earlier this week from the Wall Street Journal. The post “Erika Hall : Demystifying the Concept of Design” is a quick and direct read that addresses a variety of fundamentals surrounding good design. Design is not mystical thing that’s simply added to “provide polish to a core service”.
“Design is merely the set of decisions you either make or set aside when you create your product.” If your are at all involved in design or are in the process of creating a new product or service that will require design it is a must read…. #design #productdesign
