The design of 'Love Actually,' the typeface, the basic line of that poster and that DVD cover has been ripped off so many times.
A challenging economy is always good for design. It unites necessity and functionality. You are forced to be creative with poor materials.
Diane von Furstenberg
Google has withdrawn from China, arguing that it is no longer willing to design its search engine to block information that the Chinese government does not wish its citizens to have. In liberal democracies around the world, this decision has generally been greeted with enthusiasm.
I love design in general, the creativity. Whether it is golf courses, my apparel line, ads we do or our business with AriZona, design is fun.
If I was influenced by anything, it was architecture: structure having to do with logic. If you don't do it right, the whole thing is going to cave in. In a certain sense, you can carry that to graphic design. Fortunately, however, nobody is going to die if you do it wrong.
No wonder the film industry started in the desert in California where, like all desert dwellers, they dream their buildings, rather than design them.
A jellyfish is little more than a pulsating bell, a tassel of trailing tentacles and a single digestive opening through which it both eats and excretes - as regrettable an example of economy of design as ever was.
While a case can be made for intelligent design, I can't figure out why some Christians are so thrilled about that possibility. First of all, it doesn't prove there's a God. If anything, intelligent design lends support to some form of pantheism that defines God as immanent within nature.
To design something really new and innovative you have to reject reason.
Gorillas are still wild creatures. That's made very clear when you observe them in nature. They charge and perform other displays that are terrifying by design. But they don't attack unless they feel threatened.
Design and technology should be the subject where mathematical brainboxes and science whizzkids turn their bright ideas into useful products.
I've never had anyone define purity. You probably can't define purity. Purity is to live according to original design.
For much of its existence, design was all about convenience. We wanted to hide technology so that users are not distracted into thinking about the tools they use.
I have a notebook, and I know what decisions will be made in pre-production. Everything is pre-determined in the pre-production period. I visually design the whole thing, and I know when things will happen.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Design, whether it's on your body or in your home, is the same thing. It's mixing different colors, different textures, and unexpected patterns - elements that you wouldn't often put together in an interesting way.
I don't design down to a price.
I don't particularly follow the Bauhaus school of design, where you make everything into a black box - simplify it.
Well, I design costumes because I started with the theater in Chicago, but somehow a few lines just sort of fell to me to do it. And I studied it in school and I always liked it.
Once you understand this way, you will be able to make your room alive; you will be able to design a house together with your family; a garden for your children; places where you can work; beautiful terraces where you can sit and dream.
Book-jacket design may become a lost art, like album-cover design, without which late-20th-century iconography would have been pauperized.
Steve Jobs was the greatest manufacturer of consumer products of his age. His marketing vision put him on par with Henry Ford, and his grasp of the aesthetic component to industrial design far surpassed Ford's.
I'm not too fond of really cool design. I've got quite kitsch taste really, in things like tableware. I'm quite a sucker for 1930s pressed glass.
At the most basic level, prioritizing design also represents a practical consideration. It's far easier to design first and engineer later.
When you say 'design,' everybody thinks of magazine pages. So it's an emotive word. Everybody thinks it's how something looks, whereas for me, design is pretty much everything.
People say I design architectural icons. If I design a building and it becomes an icon, that's ok.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
