It seems to be a law of design that for every advantage introduced through redesign, there is an accompanying unintended disadvantage.
No design, no matter how common or seemingly insignificant, is without its adamant critics as well as its ardent admirers.
You can almost say that a design error is a human error because, after all, it's we humans who do the designing.
I have always been interested in design, but in the beginning I didn't set out to make jewelry specifically.
I'm not the expert on the great gameplay. I come in for the character design, monsters, atmosphere. I'm not the technician.
What can we learn from the battle between data and design? What can we learn from the relationship between Google and Apple? Clearly no one school of thought is right: Apple and Google are both wildly successful and profitable companies that changed the world.
Design schools are good, I guess, sometimes I visit schools, but they are very very limiting.
So if I design it and then go away, it's still living somewhere and it still exists by itself without me.
Each season I strive to design a forward-thinking and effortless collection with a very clean minimalist aesthetic.
I do quite like Gehry's Guggenheim. But where in Bilbao it's seen as an outgrowth of years of investment in urban design and engineering, in Britain it's seen as the catalyst for urban regeneration rather than the icing on the cake.
As an industrial designer, you design the thing by yourself, and then it goes away from you, whereas fashion is in constant relation to the body and to psychology. It makes it more complicated, and it makes it more challenging.
In fashion design, you can divide people into two groups. You have people who come with an aesthetic that is there forever, even if it evolves. Then you have people I call 'jumpers.' One season it can be this; the next season it's completely something else. I always knew I am more of a jumper.
Until I was eighteen, I did not know that you could study fashion design or art. I really didn't know. I already had my nose in the art world; I was already looking at things, but I didn't really get it that you could study that because my school was a very different environment.
I don't design for myself. I design something keeping in mind that it has to please a lot of women.
Dries van Noten
Being in the design industry, I've tended to meet more people who are affected by HIV and AIDS.
When you design a building, you start from a general philosophy, and you come down, and you start from detail and come up. Only the theoretical architect believes that you can make the concept and then sometime, somebody will come to build it.
My guilty pleasure is I like to watch a lot of HGTV. I really like watching design shows about houses, like extreme homes. Like buying a bridge and turning it into a house or something like that. I really am interested in home design or something like that... architecture.
I have to experience the Nokia products. I'm a major contributor to the design and the quality of the devices. I have a lot of feedback to provide the teams on that. But also I have to carry competitive devices. You have to understand the competition.
Don't feel you have to buy something to sit in or at. Buy something you are emotionally attached to and build your design around that. One Matisse cutout poster could provide you with your whole color scheme!
User-centered design means understanding what your users need, how they think, and how they behave - and incorporating that understanding into every aspect of your process.
Jesse James Garrett
Informed clients are better clients, and they make for better design.
There is a voice, and there is a DNA to how I design.
Case studies of failure should be made a part of the vocabulary of every engineer so that he or she can recall or recite them when something in a new design or design process is suggestive of what went wrong in the case study.
I employ case studies of failure into my courses, emphasizing that they teach us much more than studies of success. It is not that success stories cannot serve as models of good design or as exemplars of creative engineering. They can do that, but they cannot teach us how close to failure they are.
It is not possible to design always the same. How to be different in each different place - that is the most important work and duty of the architect to find out.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
