MY THOUGHTS ON GOOD DESIGN.

Dieter my, and every other designer’s favorite designer established that design cannot be measured in a finite way, and he set about expressing the ten most important principles for what he considered was good design:

GOOD DESIGN IS INNOVATIVE
GOOD DESIGN MAKES A PRODUCT USEFUL
GOOD DESIGN IS AESTHETIC
GOOD DESIGN MAKES A PRODUCT UNDERSTANDABLE
GOOD DESIGN IS UNOBTRUSIVE
GOOD DESIGN IS HONEST
GOOD DESIGN IS LONG-LASTING
GOOD DESIGN IS THOROUGH DOWN TO THE LAST DETAIL
GOOD DESIGN IS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
GOOD DESIGN IS AS LITTLE DESIGN AS POSSIBLE………
I would go on to say that some of the best ART/DESIGN ( Visual Communication )
is quite literally an intentional accident…marginally delibrate. Not every successful effort was directly purposeful…so…. is it really any more than a happy accident? At this point habits form & creativity stops. And you learn to navigate these waters and then profess your brilliance. All this to say, a large part of the design world praises serendipity , and designers take credit for chance.

AMBITION

This entire page is ambitious bare with me as I work the kinks out ( Random widgets & Icons ), figuring out how to interface multiple platforms across varied social networks. But the goal is for me to put out as much content as possible leaving no room for excuses of the, ” I just don’t have time , ” variety. 2012 is approaching folks look for interesting work from this resource. Like comment, twitt, re-twitt, follow, etc. And I will reciprocate your generosity. In hopes that more interesting stuff can be mutually

Proliferated.
