Some may think design is merely the icing on the cake, but I believe design is part of every facet of a product from beginning to end. Yes design is extraordinary, but it's also mundane and peripheral like quality water or air, not thought about much - until it's not there. Design is what we are and what we engage in every day, it's why we choose one thing over another and it's what makes things useful. Good design is invisible, but it is the patina that forms a context for how we perceive reality and judge the world around us. Design cannot be separated from function, it is the inescapable and essential link to the success (or failure) of everyone and everything... And guess what? You are a design practicioner to some degree. Yes some make it their life to specifically focus on design, but we all do participate in a collaboration. As someone said, "The me you see is the me you'll be." Get down with your creative self! --- Thanks for humoring me, while I stand on my soapbox!Let's Design Something!
