Quote of the Day
If you look back in history of the women who are most memorable and most stylish, they were never the followers of fashion. They were the ones who were unique in their style, breakers of the rules. They were authentic, genuine, original. They were not following the trends.
What makes things memorable is that they are meaningful, significant, colorful.
Good design is making something intelligible and memorable. Great design is making something memorable and meaningful.
