Side Note: Design Thoughts...

Thursday thoughts...

Design is good design if it inspires a positive emotional response and remains functional. When the design of an object is pushed to the extent that it look fascinating or beautiful, but has otherwise had its functionality reduced, actually transfers the creation of that object out of the scope of design, and into art. This is an incredibly difficult line to balance, as not only is it a thin line, it is also curved, jagged and constantly shifting. This is the line that a designer walks.

The true top designers are so successful at what they do because they are able to navigate this line well. They are creating a mix of art and functionality that balances on the precipice of this line. That and they are usually excellent presenters and conveyors of information, and lets not forget - they have great marketing.
