Design’s root simple concept

Great design

I often find myself drowning  in a never-ending multilayered mashup culture that saturates my senses to the point where all I want, is to disconnect completely from the digital state.

So, what makes good design? The following definitions describe design’s root simple concept:

“To design something is to make a series of decisions that shape an experience for the user”

“Design doesn’t just make things beautiful, it makes them work”

“Great design is as little design as possible. It doesn’t draw attention to itself, it merely allow users to accomplish their tasks with the maximal amount efficiency and pleasure.”

If you haven’t heard of Dieter Rams 10 principles of design, you should definitely check them out.
