I do what I love to do at the moment. If I wake up tomorrow and decide I want to dance, that’s what I’d do. Or design clothes. I think I’d throw myself into whatever I’m doing now. It’s not about abandoning what I was doing before, or giving up. It’s about knowing that if I die tomorrow, I lived the way I wanted to.

On June 3, 2015, in keeping with a long tradition, I visited my home club in the Pepper Pike suburb of Cleveland, known simply as The Country Club. It’s an old William Flynn design and perhaps the most underrated course in America. It’s elegant, challenging and filled with old-world charm.
So many designers only sketch and leave pattern-making to others. Pattern-making is important so you know the structure. Then if someone tells me, ‘I can’t make a pattern from that sketch,’ I can tell them, ‘I will make it’ and then they are quiet. If I can’t make it, I don’t design it.
With consumers buying two smartphones for every desktop computer they purchase, the demands, challenges and opportunities of the mobile space are reshaping our assumptions about design and user behaviour.

I was just taught very early that if I didn’t solve problems, I was headed for a very dark path. Problems were everywhere. Now, even if there are no problems, I look for problems. I’m like, ‘You know what? I don’t like the way this spoon works. I want to design a new spoon.’
I have an all-Japanese design team, and none of them speak English. So it’s often funny and surprising how my ideas end up lost in translation.
Once the product’s task is known, design the interface first; then implement to the interface design.
So I went for engineering, specifically product design, which I enjoyed.
When I design and wonder what the point is, I think of someone having a bad time in their life. Maybe they are sad and they wake up and put on something I have made and it makes them feel just a bit better. So, in that sense, fashion is a little help in the life of a person. But only a little.
I approve designs not because I think I am more gifted or somebody who can see ahead three or four years from now, but just to make sure that the design is a logical, rational decision, taken after analyzing pros and cons.

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.
Nike is the uniform for kids all over the world, and African design has been killed by Nike. Africans no longer want to wear their own designs.
If you decide to design your own language, there are thousands of sort of amateur language designer pitfalls.
Sacred spaces can be created in any environment.
Mother Nature has been the best bioengineer in history. Why not harness the evolutionary process to design proteins?
Just as predatory animals follow a similar general design and behave in similar ways, so organizations, especially those in competition with one another, must follow certain design principles if they are to succeed and prevail.
The basic problem is that web 2.0 tools are not supportive of democracy by design. They are tools designed to gather spy-agency-like data in a seductive way, first and foremost, but as a side effect they tend to provide software support for mob-like phenomena.
I am a fashion designer. I’m not an environmentalist. When I get up in the morning, number one I’m a mother and a wife, and number two I design clothes. So the main thing I need to do is create, hopefully, exquisitely beautiful, desirable objects for my customer.
The design of a dress, furniture, a house, a room, a street and a city are all the same process.
I wear a lot of different hats – from writer to producer and artist. We all do 5 or 6 jobs, everything from creating our own graphic design to actually recording and the whole bit.
My style is kind of eclectic and I don’t like to do the same thing over and over again. I like to have fun and explore myself so you won’t see the same design.
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.
I have always been fascinated by the way things work and how they came to take the form that they did. Writing about these things satisfies my curiosity about the made world while at the same time giving me an opportunity to design a new explanation for the processes that shape it.
Organisms by their design are not made to adapt too far.
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.
When clients come to my design agency and say ‘I want to be the Apple of this or that,’ we say ‘Okay, are you ready to be the Steve Jobs?’ Few are up to the task.
I design therefore I become.
At the University of Maryland, my first year I started off planning to major in art because I was interested in theatre design, stage design or television design.
I majored in fashion design in school, and I have always wanted to design my own line of clothing, jewelry, and stuff like that; so this was just a step for me in that direction.
If you see a player out in public having dinner, chances are he’s with his boring money manager or some boring rich guy he hopes to design a golf course for.
I think it’s really important to design things with a kind of personality.
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.
Every step and every movement of the multitude, even in what are termed enlightened ages, are made with equal blindness to the future; and nations stumble upon establishments, which are indeed the result of human action, but not the execution of any human design.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
I want to design my own clothing line. I’m very into fashion. It’s something I really want to focus on when swimming is over.
I design things to help people to hopefully express their personality.
In the end, I hope there’s a little note somewhere that says I designed a good computer.
I don’t design clothes, I design dreams.
I’ve always thought that design can have equal importance to the idea of internal architecture. Professionally, things can be very dogmatic – you do the architecture, someone else does the interiors, someone else does the furniture, the fabric, etc. But I think design is all-encompassing.
Design is important, it’s an important dimension in the car. It’s not the only one.
Sometimes, you start with the drawing and then the gag comes to you in the middle of it. That is when you start working on the solution of the gag, which is composition, placing, equilibrium, and character design.
For me, I’ve always believed that there was a God. I’ve always believed that God created the heavens and earth – so, for me it’s not a huge leap from there to intelligent design.
Design is the courage and brilliance to cover an original and make it different.
We look at life from the back side of the tapestry. And most of the time, what we see is loose threads, tangled knots and the like. But occasionally, God’s light shines through the tapestry, and we get a glimpse of the larger design with God weaving together the darks and lights of existence.
‘Commercial’ is not the word that has to be said only by CEOs. It has to be something that is maybe the essence of design, because design has some sort of art in it and creation, but it’s also some object that you have to use. There is also this pragmatic end to it.
I thank Marc Jacobs so much for giving me the opportunity to design a shoe for Louis Vuitton, but the thing that broke my heart most was when they said, ‘You’re finished. The shoe’s finished.’
The debate that I’m interested in having is with seriously smart people about how we design institutions in the 21st century that will genuinely address problems of poverty and educational underachievement.
When you design it, think how you would feel if you had to fly it! Safety first!
Intelligent design itself does not have any content.
What I learned from my years in Silicon Valley is that design can have a primary role in how a business is shaped, how a company can be design-driven. In my experience of large industry in Europe, that knowledge has been lost.
My biggest word of advice that I could give to people that are dealing with a home renovation or decoration is to not think about design as it’s been presented to you before. I think everybody needs to start designing based on the moments they imagine having in their home and that is what has guided me as a decorator.
I have had this view of the optimization of the electrode design for a long time. Historically we went through various phases in the work and eventually worked on large sheets – very large sheets – of palladium.
I learned that the first technology appeared in the form of stone tools, 2.6 million years ago. First entertainment comes evidence from flutes that are 35,000 years old. And evidence for first design comes 75,000 years old – beads. And you can do the same with your genes and track them back in time.
A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
If you look at WeWork as a brand I think the way we design has a more masculine vibe.
The mind is like a richly woven tapestry in which the colors are distilled from the experiences of the senses, and the design drawn from the convolutions of the intellect.
I really feel that design has the capacity to communicate, and I really have concentrated on the communication of positive values.
I love design.
When writing for the page, the focus is on the design – how the words appear on the page. I try to make it as direct and simple as possible.
I wouldn’t say design has become strictly functional. A lot of cars these days look downright comic book to me, and the info-gadgets with which late industrial people spend the most time – phones, music players, etc. – are blobjects.
One of the best animated films I’ve seen come out of Disney was the Tarzan movie. I wasn’t crazy about the story or the design on Tarzan’s face, but the traditional animation was spectacular.
It was Einstein’s dream to discover the grand design of the universe, a single theory that explains everything. However, physicists in Einstein’s day hadn’t made enough progress in understanding the forces of nature for that to be a realistic goal.
After the Great Depression and after public urging, a nationwide public competition was held to determine a design for a memorial that would honor President Thomas Jefferson’s bold vision for westward expansion for America.
When I first started my graphic design career, and ‘Beach Culture’ magazine, I pretty much ran from the surfer label. It was hard to get people to take you seriously.
My hair is different than a lot of people’s. I like my hair. I like the fade. I like the little design I have. I’m cool with it. Obviously my hair is thin on top, so it looks like a bald spot, but I really could care less.
I always wanted to design for films.
I just like music that sounds like music. Not like machines and computers and things that you design to make things sound slick and perfect.
Music is where I have the most creative freedom, but I love producing. To me, that’s kind of where all the action is. You get a chance to have your hands in every aspect of a film. From picking a director, sometimes picking a writer, to the actors, the wardrobe, set design, editing, music, and marketing.
When your arms are out wide, you’ll capture love and joy and golden moments but other things, too. Mistrust will sneak in on a wave of that joy, and complications will ride the backs of the golden moments, and there will be both love and the risks of love. That’s the way it is. That’s the design.
The only thing Martha and I have in common is that we both used to model. Martha Stewart is extremely talented. Her designs are picture perfect. Our philosophy is life is messy, and rather than being afraid of those messes we design products that work the way we live.
I was one of the more talented ones at the design firm I joined, so I conducted my work pretty shrewdly. Except I wasn’t a morning person, so I was quite frequently late for work. On top of that, it was a fairly big company, they were fussy about the dress code, and I got chewed out quite often.
If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
A great dream of mine would be to run a design studio full of scientists who think about science as creatively as if they were doing art.
Eighteenth century American furniture and the design of the architects Greene and Greene are my special love.
NPR editors and journalists found themselves caught in a game of trying to please a leadership team who did not want to hear stories on the air about conservatives, the poor, or anyone who didn’t fit their profitable design of NPR as the official voice of college-educated, white, liberal-leaning, upper-income America.
The New Testament evinces its universal design in its very, style, which alone distinguishes it from all the literary productions of earlier and later times.
I describe the design process as like the tip of the iceberg. What you don’t see is the long haul: all the endless auditing and things like that.
We should always look upon ourselves as God’s servants, placed in God’s world, to do his work; and accordingly labour faithfully for him; not with a design to grow rich and great, but to glorify God, and do all the good we possibly can.
I try to push design boundaries using new draping and fabric manipulation techniques every time I approach a new design.
I think there is a new awareness in this 21st century that design is as important to where and how we live as it is for museums, concert halls and civic buildings.
‘Intelligent Design,’ the relabeled, repackaged form of American creationism, has always had a problem. It just can’t seem to produce any evidence.
The stylish kids on the street, they’re the ones that set the trends. The designers see what they’re doing and go and design their line and sell it back to the same kids, and it’s like, why not go directly to the source?
I don’t have a background in design, so I think it’s always about what I see in the world and what inspires me. So yes, I am designing for myself. I’m going through this whole evolution, which is a process of growing up and going from modeling to styling to designing.
Design is about creating spaces for people to enjoy and of course, creating moments where you elevate the spirit, but ‘design for good’ is figuring out a program that not only creates better spaces, but creates jobs, creates new industry and really kind of raises the conversation about how we rebuild.
Every contrivance of man, every tool, every instrument, every utensil, every article designed for use, of each and every kind, evolved from a very simple beginnings.
Art has to move you and design does not, unless it’s a good design for a bus.
Initially, it was the unpractical in fashion that brought me to design my own line. I felt that it was much more attractive to cut clothes with respect for the living, three-dimensional body rather than to cover the body with decorative ideas.
In just six weeks from the time the design was started, we had the motor on the block testing its power.
Golf course design is exciting.
Fashion and interior design are one and the same.
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
When I studied graphic design, I learned a valuable lesson: There’s no perfect answer to the puzzle, and creativity is a renewable resource.
Graphic design is a hobby that I started with back in 2010-2011, which I am still doing today. And because of that, I was able to design my own stuff and designed my own logo.
I was very much inspired by the things that I’d seen and done in politics, but I was also desperate for a complete departure from the reality of my political experience. ‘It’s Classified’ and my previous book ‘Eighteen Acres’ are both works of fiction, but if they do seem realistic, it’s by design.
People tell you the world looks a certain way. Parents tell you how to think. Schools tell you how to think. TV. Religion. And then at a certain point, if you’re lucky, you realize you can make up your own mind. Nobody sets the rules but you. You can design your own life.
Even private persons in due season, with discretion and temper, may reprove others, whom they observe to commit sin, or follow bad courses, out of charitable design, and with hope to reclaim them.
Similar to computer technology in the ’60s, 3-D printing is a universal technology that has the potential to revolutionize our life by enabling individuals to design and manufacture things.
For businesses, biomimicry is about bringing a new discipline – biology – to the design table. It’s not to write an environmental impact statement, as most biologists in business do right now.
I changed the layout of comic books in general. When I came in, layout design wasn’t really part of what you did. It was all just panels, panels, panels. So when I came in, I thought, ‘Nah, let’s change that,’ and I designed the page.
For two years nobody talked about anything other than the name arrangement. There was no fund-raising and no progress being made on construction and design.
Even when I was a little girl, I remember going to the Museum of Modern Art. I think my parents took me there once or twice. And what I really remember is the design collection.
Design my own line? No, I just like the culture.
Many churches of all persuasions are hiring research agencies to poll neighborhoods, asking what kind of church they prefer. Then the local churches design themselves to fit the desires of the people. True faith in God that demands selflessness is being replaced by trendy religion that serves the selfish.
I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in providence, for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.
Throughout the country, I see the same design problems and solutions over and over.
For all the drama we all have with our families and all the tension and hostility, I couldn’t have done this without my family. Being the people that they are – they’re crazy – made it possible for me to be crazy and to live a lifestyle of my own design.
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.
Always beware an unsigned architectural design.
So the premise of ‘The Submission’ is that there’s an anonymous competition to design a 9/11 memorial and it’s won by an American Muslim, an architect born and raised in Virginia, and his name is Mohammad Khan.
There are professions more harmful than industrial design, but only a few.
Design is inherently optimistic. That is its power.

Any design, whether it’s for a ship or an airplane, must be done in anticipation of potential failures.
The design of those commissioners, frigates and warlike force is directed rather against Long Island and these your Honors’ possessions, than to the imagined reform of New England.
Safety is not just about trying really hard and being really careful. You have to design technology that makes it possible for a computer to be safe.
The design process usually starts as a fantasy, with ideas that I dream of and visualize. These ideas become a reality by bringing various ingredients together, from the lifestyle of my bride, her age and sex appeal, to the textures of the finest fabrics and embroideries that we produce in my family factories in India.
I mean, I think about it, but I don’t design my record to get a certain public response.
It was by design that we mostly used pictures that you could not necessarily see what was going on, and that didn’t really focus in on the band, but instead focused in on a theme.
The computer can’t tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what’s missing is the eyebrows.
I have beautiful, beautiful clothes, designed by my bachelor boy son, Kenny. Kenny has a big following as it is, and even Lady Gaga has asked Kenny to design dresses for her. But Kenny isn’t very keen on, well, shall we say, extreme women. He likes someone that women all over the world can identify with.
It turns out that a lot of gamers love design, love to create in digital.
I’m a total control freak and love to participate in the design of every single aspect of life.
Perhaps I’d like to design cars, but I don’t think I’d be much good at it.
Everyone by now presumably knows about the danger of premature optimization. I think we should be just as worried about premature design – designing too early what a program should do.
Books are but waste paper unless we spend in action the wisdom we get from thought – asleep. When we are weary of the living, we may repair to the dead, who have nothing of peevishness, pride, or design in their conversation.
The key to making things affordable is design and technology improvements, as well as scale.
I never set out to do interior design; I just do what I do, and some people come along and want me to work with them.
My background was in graphic design, but when I was doing it, it was all hand-drawn stuff, not computers.
I went to my boss, and I said, ‘Look, I’d like to design these ties because I think they could be new.’ He said, ‘The world isn’t ready for Ralph Lauren.’ I never forgot that because… I thought that was a compliment.
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.
People say I design architectural icons. If I design a building and it becomes an icon, that’s ok.
I did not direct my life. I didn’t design it. I never made decisions. Things always came up and made them for me. That’s what life is.
It is not that you do wrong by design, but that you should never do right by mistake.
The genome was once thought to be just the blueprint for a living organism, like a combination of the architect’s plan for a building and the builder’s list of supplies. It specified the parts, the building blocks, and, somehow, the design of the whole, the way in which they are to be put together.
I like to paint my own helmets. I design my own suit and boots, I like being unique in that way.
Anyone with a computer and a design program can create a page layout. But unless you’re trained in design, it won’t look very good and it won’t communicate very well.
My stylist has really great taste – Petra Flannery has really great taste. I mean, I am opinionated, and as time goes on, as I’ve gotten to see more dresses or more clothes, it’s easier to say, ‘I like that’ or ‘I don’t like that,’ but it’s nothing I would ever, you know, design.
Graphic design is the paradise of individuality, eccentricity, heresy, abnormality, hobbies and humors.
You all know that each title in the Chronicles has a chess theme; that’s partly because of the overall design of the Chronicles themselves – the game of chess as an analogue of the game of life.
In any case, his judgment and set of values, acting alone or through his assistants, determine not only what is gold and what is dross but the design of the history which he creates out of the metal. The historian decides what is significant, and what is not.
To design the future effectively, you must first let go of your past.
I’m not into politics but I am committed to a cause: ensuring design technology and engineering stays on the U.K. curriculum, alongside science and maths – grounding abstract theory, merging the practical with the academic.
We are very proud of our design for the Transbay Transit Center. This will be a beautiful, functional and sustainable building for San Francisco.
In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design.
So much of it is the design of the shot or the motion of the character; it’s the work you do so that it has the same things that are in the movie. In just a few frames it’s got to communicate something clearly and dramatically.
Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable.
Internet safety begins at home and that is why my legislation would require the Federal Trade Commission to design and publish a unique website to serve as a clearinghouse and resource for parents, teachers and children for information on the dangers of surfing the Internet.
To design is to communicate clearly by whatever means you can control or master.
I’d love to design bridal dresses.
I’ve never mentioned this, but when I was at Parsons teaching, the other design disciplines, they don’t like fashion design. They see it as very nineteenth-century.
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.
If there is a gay uniform, the differences are in how each man coordinates the details: the brand and cut of the jeans, the design of belts and boots, the haircut, the number and size of earrings.
You cannot design shoes if you only think about fashion; it’s too realistic. When I design, I dream.
I wish someone would ask me to design a cathedral.
When I meet celebrities, I have to know what they are like and only then can I design. The clothes have to fit their personality.
I believe consistency and orthogonality are tools of design, not the primary goal in design.
I can’t design anything unless I’m excited by it, meaning I have an urge to wear 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.
Nearly all inventions are not recognised for their positive side either when they’re made. So, for example, scientists didn’t go out to design a CD machine: they designed a laser. But we got all sorts of things from a laser which we never remotely imagined, and we’re still finding things for a laser to do.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with white space. I don’t think it’s a problem to have a blank wall.
Hip-hop and electronic music are so similar, in the fact that they’re both very visceral, have so much bass; a lot of times, it’s the same tempos. The culture and some of the sound design is different but a lot of times, it’s the same stuff.
With fashion, you really need to understand the aspects of construction. Not just design on an iPad.
I love the idea of couture and its emphasis on creation. There’s where I made my name – in design – and there’s where I’d like to stay.
I always design with the occasion in mind, so I particularly enjoy creating bespoke pieces; it’s always an exciting challenge for me creatively.
I realize that having a style would be very beneficial for my practice from a marketing standpoint, but I can’t do it. I believe my responsibilities as an architect are to design the most appropriate building for the place. Each place has a distinct culture and function, which for me requires an appropriate answer.
I love to design things that people can actually buy. I’m staggered by what a boot costs today.
I was a cartoonist when I was at university, but I decided to go into movie making knowing that I could still draw by doing movies, design work, story boards, and such.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual. When you see a woman in my clothes, you want to know more about them. To me, that is what distinguishes good designers from bad designers.
When I design buildings, I think of the overall composition, much as the parts of a body would fit together. On top of that, I think about how people will approach the building and experience that space.
God is His own Design and End, and that there is no other Worthy of Him.
I really appreciate artists of the 20th century, and I can see a lot of their influence on my work, but to suggest that my design only fits within an ‘ism’ kind of bothers me.
I became an art major, took every art class my school had to offer. In college, I majored in Advertising Art and Design.
Watching my dad, Ralph Lauren, design clothes when I was young, I was always inspired.
Design schools are good, I guess, sometimes I visit schools, but they are very very limiting.
When I was a very little boy, I lived underneath the air pattern of LaGuardia airport in New York and I watched the planes fly to their destinations. I was in love with the design of these airplanes.
Wonderbra is such an iconic brand with strong design values and great sense of humour.
I make spaces that are calm rather than confrontational. I seek a certain kind of logic that allows you to move in space and perceive it as beautiful and rational. Clarity is a worthwhile quality.
When I was very, very young, seven years old, I heard there was school where you could go to learn to draw. That was my absolute driven passion, to become an artist or a painter. So the romantic realist in me, I studied to be a graphic design artist and an art teacher.
When I came to MIT, there were four rubrics: science, art, design, and technology. And as you entered your degree, whether it was a master’s or a Ph.D., if you were a citizen in one domain, you were a traveler in the other.
Few developments central to the history of art have been so misrepresented or misunderstood as the brief, brave, glorious, doomed life of the Bauhaus – the epochally influential German art, architecture, crafts, and design school that was founded in Goethe’s sleepy hometown of Weimar in 1919.
The wisdom of crowds works when the crowd is choosing the price of an ox, when there’s a single numeric average. But if it’s a design or something that matters, the decision is made by committee, and that’s crap. You want people and groups who are able to think thoughts before they share.
All those years of skating and dancing have carried over. I can’t design anything without thinking of how a woman’s body will look and move when she’s wearing it.
Studying design has made me a much, much more astute observer of this aspect of business. And I’m working mightily to improve my empathic skills. I’ve dramatically improved my ability to read facial expressions – and I’m trying to be a better, more attentive listener.
By coincidence and not design, ‘Everstar’ is written and drawn by an all-female creative team, and it makes me smile to think that there may be young female readers out there, future writers and artists, who get to see that comics doesn’t have to be a ‘boys’ club.’
The essence of architecture is form and space, and light is the essential element to the key to architectural design, probably more important than anything. Technology and materials are secondary.
I don’t believe in planning for things. I just want them to fall in place, unfold as they like. I never design things. I want films to choose me; I don’t choose films.
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.
Everyone designs who devises courses of action aimed at changing existing situations into preferred ones.
By 1970, the first stirrings of the revolt against Modernist orthodoxy in architecture had been felt, although it would be several years more until Postmodernism was widely accepted and made classical motifs permissible in high-style building design for the first time in decades.
Color does not add a pleasant quality to design – it reinforces it.
The emphasis and value on ideas and original thinking is an innate part of British culture, and in many ways, that describes the traditions of design.
I moved to New York and went to art school at Parsons School of Design. Became a photographer. Became a creative consultant.
From a design perspective, the U.S. has always been a great source of inspiration for me.
Summer blockbusters are very expensive to make. They have things that have to be expensive, such as 600 effects shots or CG characters that have to go a certain way, or a film design that is different but expensive.
Eventually everything connects – people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.
Our guiding principle was that design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society.
There are two kinds of designers: ones who are very happy locked in their office surrounded by their coterie. The last thing they need to do is to go to a trunk show; they’d go running for the hills. I not only enjoy it, I think, how do you design things that are applicable to life – unless you live it?
The craftless anarchy of the Beat poets on the one hand, and the extreme control of Henry James on the other, suggest that for most human beings, just as both freedom and discipline are necessary in life, serendipity and design must coexist in a work to make it readable.
As a woman, I’m expected to want everything to be nice and to be nice myself. A very English thing. I don’t design nice buildings – I don’t like them. I like architecture to have some raw, vital, earthy quality.
We want people to realize you are at a design school, not a land grant college. The way we look says a great deal about who we are.
Italy is full of historical buildings. And Europe holds a great history of philosophy from Greece until today. I read all those books and see these buildings, and I think of where I stand when I design my architecture.
A shoe is not only a design, but it’s a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way you’re going to move is quite dictated by your shoes.
I design for the inspiring, stylish women I meet every day. I try not to look around or be distracted by what other people are creating. I make jewelry that I want to keep for years to come and I really love what I do!
By no definition of any modern scientist is intelligent design science, and it’s a waste of our students’ time to subject them to it.
I think design means, for me, almost when man, back in time, decided to do something conscious. You know… to shape something and make something different from just using things that were lying around. So whoever designed the wheel were onto a good thing.
I was going to design sports cars, but my father came to my college to visit me. At the time he was making a picture in Sweden and he took me there with him. I got to see Ingmar Bergman’s company and I thought, ‘Gee, filmmaking is a lot more fun than sports cars,’ so I decided to follow him and go into acting.
I do not discriminate about size. I design dresses to accentuate a woman’s positives, whether you are a size 0 or a size 3X.
No wonder the film industry started in the desert in California where, like all desert dwellers, they dream their buildings, rather than design them.
We design our world, while our world acts back on us and designs us.
Data and data sets are not objective; they are creations of human design. We give numbers their voice, draw inferences from them, and define their meaning through our interpretations.
Proponents of intelligent design don’t accept that some of the very complex nanomachines that we have inside ourselves could have come about solely on the basis of natural selection.
I design some of my own clothes now.
The proper study of mankind is the science of design.
Companies that are design-led understand that design is not a deliverable; it is a profound manifestation of the human spirit.
When I announced the development of Perl 6, I said it was going to be a community design. I designed Perl, myself. It’s limited by my own brain power. So I wanted Perl 6 to be a community design.
I am persuaded, that if any attempt is made to improve the education of the poor, and such an unmanly spirit should guide the resolution of a society or committee for that purpose, it would render the design abortive.
Boeing just took $20 billion and 10 years to improve the efficiency of their planes by 10 percent. That’s pretty lame. I have a design in mind for a vertical liftoff supersonic jet that would be a really big improvement.
The sky is a free asset in design, and nothing unnecessary should be planted that takes away the sky.
I’m not really well educated – other than an art survey course at the High School of Art and Design in New York when I was, like, 15. I don’t know the history of art, but I got over intimidation from the art world when I realized that I was allowed to feel whatever I want and like whatever I want.
I’m opinionated. I always stick to my design plan. I don’t waver.
I have made bouquets of pleats, bouquets of flowers, bouquets of ruffles, bouquets of feathers. Often I design in mousseline, held tightly around the waist, and with something else going on all around.
Genome design is going to be a key part of the future. That’s why we need fast, cheap, accurate DNA synthesis, so you can make a lot of iterations of something and test them.
That’s a hobby of mine – to do whatever I can for unusual for-hire creative projects. I am waiting for someone to really challenge me – obviously I’m often approached to do film related work, but I would be very happy to design a bar or an amusement park ride. I would love to be an imagineer!
In software design, it’s all about making a guess, trying it, and then learning from the experience.
I would like to design what people generally call streetwear. I’d like to dress skateboarders, or whatever the older equivalent of skateboarders are. I pay more attention to that stuff than anyone would ever imagine because I’m watching what the designers do.
I’m a big believer in the emotion of design, and the message that’s sent before somebody begins to read, before they get the rest of the information; what is the emotional response they get to the product, to the story, to the painting – whatever it is.
Dubstep has everything for me. Rhythm, sound design, heartfelt emotion – all in one place.
Design, by definition, is an eco-friendly activity, as its aim is to create objects which are meaningful and durable. Trends always cost resources, but a true designer creates wares which will remain relevant forever.
I think a lot of times people design restaurants with flash in mind. I think you should design restaurants with function in mind. Make sure it’s functional and works with what you’re trying to accomplish. Design can come later.
I don’t design houses with the nuclear family idea because I don’t believe in it as a concept.
It’s a very strange thing for a designer to say, but one of the things that really irritates me in products is when I’m aware of designers wagging their tails in my face.
Good design begins with honesty, asks tough questions, comes from collaboration and from trusting your intuition.
I always wanted to be an actor, but I always loved design, and growing up in New Orleans there was such great style, great architecture. I would decorate my little apartment in New York over and over again, because it only had a couple of rooms. And I did it for friends and family on the side just for fun.
I’ve found that people who design computers don’t know a lot about displays.
The urge for good design is the same as the urge to go on living.
My mantra is: ‘Good design accelerates the adoption of new ideas.’
The future of design is a future where anything material in the environment – whether it’s wearables, cars, buildings – can be designed with this variation of properties and relationship with the environment that can take part in the natural ecology.
When I am true to my inspiration, even fight for my design, the project always turns out well.
I design for myself and the first question I ask is, ‘Would I wear it?’
The dreaded phrase in design circles is ‘show and tell.’
Design is a series of creative choices – it’s a collaborative effort, an evolutionary process. You choose your fabrics depending upon what you want to say, then you work with mills to get those fabrics. Through the process, you realize what you want it to be.
Independent graphic novelists have already achieved good work in terms of design, but all these great minds are writing in English. There is a need for people to write in Hindi.
Can you design a Rorschach test that’s going to make everyone feel something every time – and that looks like a Rorschach test? It’s easy to show a picture of a kitten or a car accident. The question is, how abstract can you get and still get the audience to feel something when they don’t know what’s happening to them?
Art is to be free. Design is to fix.
If you have to design something, choose things that we need as opposed to frivolous things that we might just want for a month or two for bragging rights.
So, I’m always around video games but I’ve always been interested in them from a visual perspective, with the graphic design and that whole thing. I don’t know if that comes from my love of photography or what but that’s always what’s held my interest about them.
Preventing global warming from becoming a planetary catastrophe may take something even more drastic than renewable energy, superefficient urban design, and global carbon taxes.
British innovation in design, in the creative arts, in engineering and manufacturing is world class.
Architects feel empowered to give opinions about politics and sociology and philosophy without knowing much about it. Kind of in the same way that they think they can design furniture or fashion or utensils for dining.
Developing games for the PC and consoles is all about everything and the kitchen sink. In many ways, you don’t have design decisions to make. You do it all. So I enjoy going back to making decisions about what’s important as I’m working on a game.
People interact with their phones very differently than they do with their PCs, and I think that when you design from the ground up with mobile in mind, you create a very different product than going the other way.
I’d like to do a lot of things – whether in design or architecture or business.
I wish you didn’t have to design so often. Try to do quality and cut down on quantity. I think fashion is very, very important.
Biological engineering is not necessarily understanding systems but rather, I want to be able to design and build biological systems to perform particular applications.

The federal debt in this country is principally of Republican design.
And just when we were at the end of our design process there was the news that the Italian government and the U.S. government had signed an agreement to fly the first Italian astronaut on that flight.
Uniqlo as a company has always developed new fabrics and is always trying to be innovative. The design is simple, so the fabric is important.
There’s a fun, nostalgic aspect to Legos – people connect to the art on a different level. But it’s also a medium that lets me design anything I can imagine. I especially enjoy creating curvy forms using rectangular pieces. Up close, you notice the sharp angles, but when you back away, the corners blend into curves.
It’s aggravating that Hollywood has never gotten credit for the role it played in promoting modern design.
It’s all in how you arrange the thing… the careful balance of the design is the motion.
I never was interested in being part of the fashion world – I just wanted to design shoes. I didn’t even know ‘Vogue’ existed when I was growing up. ‘Vogue,’ what is that?’

I do two things. I design mobile computers and I study brains.
Tesla is changing the paradigm. We’re going to turn the world on its ear and create high demand through design.
It is sad that so many designers don’t know how to make. CAD software can make a bad design look palatable! It is sad that four years can be spent on a 3D design course without making anything! People who are great at designing and making have a great advantage.
I was very interested in theatre, mostly in stage design. I did a little bit of acting.
I gave the couple a hint of a design that would work great with the bones of their home. They weren’t ready for it, and they embarrassed themselves and that’s too bad.
Design is about creating spaces for people to enjoy and of course, creating moments where you elevate the spirit, but ‘design for good’ is figuring out a program that not only creates better spaces, but creates jobs, creates new industry and really kind of raises the conversation about how we rebuild.
There are really two things that have to occur in order for a new technology to be affordable to the mass market. One is you need economies of scale. The other is you need to iterate on the design. You need to go through a few versions.
I’m completely taken and impressed by the planning authority of Singapore and its Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). It’s the most cutting-edge agency in the world. They have very effective guidelines for development, and they review design as it evolves.
The path to the CEO’s office should not be through the CFO’s office, and it should not be through the marketing department. It needs to be through engineering and design.
If a course needs to be in great condition to be played effectively, then the design strategy is flawed.
Good design to me is both appearance and functionality together. It’s the experience that makes it good design.
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!
There is no reason to design buildings that are more basic and rectilinear, because with concrete you can cover almost any space.
I am extremely excited to develop and design a brand representative of my life, experiences and style. Working closely with Cherokee will help establish a worldwide presence with best-in-class retailers and category leaders.
For many years, I have lived uncomfortably with the belief that most planning and architectural design suffers for lack of real and basic purpose. The ultimate purpose, it seems to me, must be the improvement of mankind.
In architecture the idea degenerated. Design allows a more direct and pleasurable route.
We thought it would be fun to try to design a show that would work well internationally and so that’ s what we’re intending to do with Fraggle Rock, and we are indeed now selling it around the world.
We used to be referred to as bakers and then we became known as cake decorators and now we are known as cake designers. I teach at the French Culinary Institute in New York and cake design is a legitimate profession.
I believe in empty spaces; they’re the most wonderful thing.
We basically built a pricing model that surgically identified what people wanted to pay us for and what they didn’t want to pay us for. One of the things we figured out early on was that we could create value for people by creating a product that allowed them to design something that they couldn’t design without us.
As an architect, you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.
I want young people to be able to buy into what I design. When I was young, I wanted to buy designer brands even if all I could afford was the cheapest wallet, the cheapest pen, the cheapest T-shirt because I wanted to be a part of it.
I wasn’t supposed to run as much as I did in the NFL. But it turned out that all that scrambling I had done in college became necessary in the NFL. It wasn’t by design. It was because I was running for my life!
In order to design a future of positive change, we must first become expert at changing our minds.
His father is governor of Media, and though he has the greatest command given him of all the rest of my generals, he still covetously desires more, and my being without issue spurs him on to this wicked design. But Philotas takes wrong measures.
Pete Dye introduced me to golf course design back in the 1960’s. He came to my hometown Columbus, Ohio to work on The Golf Club.
I hate going out for lunch during a workday because it slows down my pace and ruins my rhythm. I prefer to eat at my desk. Actually, I wander around the design studio with a plate in my hand as I dine on, for example, salmon sashimi and a salad of tomatoes and mozzarella. I often have a bit of dark chocolate after lunch.
What we do in the laboratory is we try to design drugs that will not just eradicate cancer cells but will eradicate their homes.
In the ’70s and ’80s there was an attempt in K-12 to teach science through art or art through science. The challenge today is how do you build the ethos of art and design into the academy of science.
I have lived with my husband more than I have with my parents… I live beside him, and know his worries, his hopes, and his dreams for his nation. We believe that things happen by design, not in an arbitrary way. And we believe it is our duty to make things happen.
Being non-commercial is never an ambition. Movies come together at different points for fortuitous reasons. You do them as you get the opportunity, as opposed to doing them when you choose to or design to.
I like the gritty parts of fashion, the design, the studio, the pictures.
What people respond to in my room makeovers is the daring design – fearless colors, bold fabrics and occasionally outlandish decor.
I do love DVD and I’ve always taken them seriously. You know, on the Austin things, we really put a ton of work into them because there’s so much design involved. And in this one, we thought a lot about it and what could go in.
I didn’t want to be an actor. I wanted to design historical movies like ‘Ben-Hur’. I saw this as my life.
Fields make huge progress when they move from stories (e.g Icarus) and authority (e.g ‘witch doctor’) to evidence/experiment (e.g physics, wind tunnels) and quantitative models (e.g design of modern aircraft).
The very best design, I feel, is that which resonates so deeply that people can’t help but discover something within themselves when they see it.
We worked with the engineers in the design and construction and testing phases in those various areas, then we would get back together at the end of the week and brief each other as to what had gone on.
Design has always been at the heart of our business.
French architecture always manages to combine the most magnificent underlying themes of architecture; like Roman design, it looks to the community.
You think about the beauty and what you want to transmit. If I think about designing, I can’t design.
When you as a designer design something that burdens a community with maintenance and old world technology, basically failed developed world technology, then you will crush that community way beyond bad design; you’ll destroy the economics of that community, and often the community socially is broken.
Delay always breeds danger; and to protract a great design is often to ruin it.
People believe the only alternative to randomness is intelligent design.
Design is an unknown.
To me, Celine is unrivaled, and Hedi Slimane has such a multifaceted talent – from clothing design to photography. He creates this rare, incredible, and desirable world through his vision. I’m always inspired by his work.
Graphic Design, which fulfills aesthetic needs, complies with the laws of form and exigencies of two-dimensional space; which speaks in semiotics, sans-serifs, and geometrics; which abstracts, transforms, translates, rotates, dilates, repeats, mirrors, groups, and regroups, is not good design if it is irrelevant.
Design is an expression of one’s most deeply rooted internal values.
A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.
The Keystone XL project has built strong safety measures into its design with the newest technology. Additionally, 80 percent of the new Canadian oil sands are being developed ‘in situ,’ meaning, it has a similar carbon footprint and emissions as conventional oil wells.
English is taking over the world. I just wrote a piece about it. And it’s not by design. The United States dominates because it’s the biggest market.
I’m also interested in pets with alopecia. And design. I’m surprised I haven’t gone through with a homeware brand. The bedding, the comforters, the candles, the this and that. I would like to design everything.
I had talked for years about doing a restaurant with Rocky Dudum, who’s been my friend since I first came to San Francisco. Then Rocky’s son, Jeff, said he wanted to design it, so he traveled around the country to sports restaurants like Mickey Mantle’s and Michael Jordan’s, and he came up with a great concept.
When you’re making a TV drama, the showrunner is God, and so however onerous and difficult and consuming that responsibility is, you’re being treated with respect, so it changes your whole outlook to the production. You’re being asked about costumes, set design, music, every aspect of the show.
Although my art work was heavily informed by my design work on a formal and visual level, as regards meaning and content the two practices parted ways.
I design for the woman who loves being a woman.
Precisely because intelligent design does not turn the study of biological origins into a Bible-science controversy, intelligent design is a position around which Christians of all stripes can unite.

I discovered at an early age that all I’ve ever wanted to do is design.
Interior design is a business of trust.
But active programming consists of the design of new programs, rather than contemplation of old programs.
My design preference tends towards warmth, comfort, and minimalism.
For some reason I have a visual intuition that allows me to design things in an interesting way, and I don’t know where that came from. Because I don’t have this formal training, I seem to drift in a different direction.
Decisions are the frequent fabric of our daily design.
I am interested in computers and technology, and art, photography, and design.
So much of design is context.
Modern design becomes the eye catcher because it’s out of context, it is something newborn and fresh, something people have never seen before. I mean, that in itself is the way we should sort of stimulate the senses of society, this urban condition.
Design our world so that we have positive social and environmental side effects.
But I’m blessed to work with great people. I collaborate with brilliant stylists both here and in Paris. I work with a great design team. I really allow everyone to bring their ideas. I almost rely on them to inspire me.
I am always locked in my design studio.
Designers are very fickle. I never wanted to be a victim of that. You’re in one minute, out the next.
Let’s be realistic, how many people are buying a $2,000 skirt? I love to design things that people can actually buy. I’m staggered by what a boot costs today.
I studied fine arts and architecture, but I decided to move into movie design because I grew up in a small town in the Marche region and spent a lot of time after school in the movie theater.
Google has placed its faith in data, while Apple worships the power of design. This dichotomy made the two companies complementary. Apple would ship the phones and computers, while Google would provide Maps, Search, YouTube, and other web tools that made the devices more useful.
I think gardens are fantastic, and I’d love to draw and design and stuff like that. I love just planting flowers during the summer. There’s something very humble about it, and natural and beautiful.
Considering my specialization in architecture, I’m not surprised that the first graphic novel to thoroughly engage, not to say captivate, me is Chip Kidd and Dave Taylor’s ‘Batman: Death by Design.’

I try to look at design from a more conceptual standpoint.
I had a faux-hawk for a while and I used to buzz the sides and design it. It was really bad.
Wherever you are, design your life. Live the values of your generation.
Success isn’t something you achieve by accident, but rather by design.
Now I design what I want to wear, and it works that way.

I have always been fascinated by Shaker design and the culture of the Shakers.
Also note that invariably when we design something that can be used by those with disabilities, we often make it better for everyone.
I’ve always loved to paint – I was studying to do an art degree when I was approached to become a model – and I’ve being doing some design work as well. I also love just having a quiet time, sitting in my little library at home in Brooklyn and reading or watching documentaries or listening to music.
How can you look at the Texas legislature and still believe in intelligent design?
I didn’t think that personal style had much value in graphic design.
They say that the best furniture and clothing design from the ’50s and ’60s is Scandinavian or Milanese.
Women are all the same; we want to be smaller in the waist, longer legs, slimmer. I design for women and their defects, to make them better.
I’ve always really loved the ’20s and the whole Art Deco time. I just think it was just the most amazing era for style and design.
Design should be easy in the sense that every step should be obviously and clearly identifiable. Simplify elements to make change simple so you can manage the technical risk.
Though men are apt to flatter and exalt themselves with their great achievements, yet these are, in truth, very often owing not so much to design as chance.
Airplanes were invented by natural selection. Now you can say that intelligent design designs our airplanes of today, but there was no intelligent design really designing those early airplanes. There were probably at least 30,000 different things tried, and when they crash and kill the pilot, don’t try that again.
A purpose, an intention, a design, strikes everywhere even the careless, the most stupid thinker.
Apart from photography and music videos, I also do graphic design.
We have to design a health delivery system by actually talking to people and asking, ‘What would make this service better for you?’ As soon as you start asking, you get a flood of answers.

I help design my own tennis clothes.
A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous.

If you write your own tools, you can sort of see new things, design new things.
Once I got out of architecture school I decided not to be an architect, I just started my own little design studio.
A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible. There are no prima donnas in engineering.
Intelligent design, unlike creationism, is a science in its own right and can stand on its own feet.
But my point is that you design something in the end that precludes any unhealthy trading practices that are not going to serve your environmental or your economic objectives but now is not the time to do it.
By the fourth grade, I graduated to an erector set and spent many happy hours constructing devices of unknown purpose where the main design criterion was to maximize the number of moving parts and overall size.
The garden, by design, is concerned with both the interior and the land beyond the garden.
Gaming in general is a male thing. It isn’t that gaming is designed to exclude women. Everybody who’s tried to design a game to interest a large female audience has failed. And I think that has to do with the different thinking processes of men and women.
I do very little industrial design. I’m asked a lot, but I certainly don’t see myself as an industrial designer.
I won’t give up my day job of design.
Almost all quality improvement comes via simplification of design, manufacturing… layout, processes, and procedures.
Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.

Leopard is an animal design, and my designs come from nature.
Outside of the chair, the teapot is the most ubiquitous and important design element in the domestic environment and almost everyone who has tackled the world of design has ended up designing one.

But, alas! what poor Woman is ever taught that she should have a higher Design than to get her a Husband?
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.
Complexity is one of the great problems in environmental design.
As a designer, design director or any creative person, you have to hire great people, support them and make them feel comfortable so they can contribute and give you their best.
All conventional wisdom has an element of truth to it, but good design requires more than an element of truth – it requires an ensemble of correct assumptions and valid calculations.
We opened a design center in the South of England last year as part of our strategy for being close to our customers and developing innovative products for exciting new markets.

I design music; I don’t produce it.
A greater focus on design in all new homes would make the best use of land, create homes and public spaces, and reinforce the structures of urban life.
Book-jacket design may become a lost art, like album-cover design, without which late-20th-century iconography would have been pauperized.
It was something I was more interested in myself. When I went to see my sister dance at ballet, I was really into costumes and the arts, and my family was also supportive of whatever me and my sister wanted to do. I would say I pushed myself the most to be into design.
I began doing writing projects and art and design projects to explore a new way of seeing Canada. Roots is one more way of continuing this exploration. I want to present a wide-open Canadian sense of color, adventure, communication and openness that defines our country.
Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.
That’s something I learned in art school. I studied graphic design in Germany, and my professor emphasized the responsibility that designers and illustrators have towards the people they create things for.
I studied literature design and fashion design.
I majored in illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, although I never had any intention of being an illustrator and didn’t take any classes in illustration there. It was just that the illustration degree had no requirements.
I almost went to Central Saint Martins for fashion design. I deferred for a year when I graduated high school so that I could go model and make some money and immerse myself in the fashion industry for a year.
We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives. We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance and truly begin to live our dreams.
Many are ready, when listening to the inventor, to belittle and deny his achievements so that he will no longer be heard in honourable places, but after some months or a year, they use the inventor’s words in speech or writing or design.
The big difference between couture and ready-to-wear is not design. It is the fabrics, the handwork, and the fittings. The act of creation is the same.
The Final Jeopardy! questions seem to be, by design, things you can’t know. And so it’s not about who knows them, but who can figure them out in thirty seconds.
When I started this project, I was a young architect. I was very apprehensive about any changes to the design. Whether I wanted to or not, I learned that you can accept some changes to its form without compromising its intent. But it’s a leap of faith that I didn’t want to make initially – to put it mildly.
Luck is the residue of design.
The design of Rhetoric is to remove those Prejudices that lie in the way of Truth, to Reduce the Passions to the Government of Reasons; to place our Subject in a Right Light, and excite our Hearers to a due consideration of it.
The artist in me cries out for design.
That was always my frustration with so many of these shows, because design is not an ambush… it’s a relationship. You have to know how people move and live and work to be able to design for them.

I now add, farther, that the apostle’s argument is so far from proving it to be the duty of people to obey, and submit to, such rulers as act in contradiction to the public good, and so to the design of their office, that it proves the direct contrary.
Once you come up with a premise, you have to work out how it all happened. It’s a bit like coming up with a spectacular roof design first. Before you can get it up there, you need to build a solid foundation and supporting structure.
Design needs a new relationship with the world, one that is more focused on our planet’s needs.
I wrote a song on the record called ‘Flawed Design’ and it’s basically looking at that, and it was just exploring how everybody obviously has flaws. I think to embrace those flaws – enjoy them, embrace them – and actually be a real person is something that a lot of people struggle with, myself included.
I grew up as an artist. Science fiction allows for design and creatures and guns and all the stuff that I like as well. So I think most of the films I make, I’m sure, will be in that category. But I can also see myself making a film like ‘Black Hawk Down,’ and I could also totally do horror.
I’m fascinated by furniture design and interiors, and I want to try designing all that stuff.
All I’ve ever wanted to do is design and make; it’s what I love doing.
Videogames are indeed design: They’re sophisticated virtual machines that echo the mechanical systems inside cars.

My particular aesthetic of light and color and design wouldn’t change as a result of working with computer graphics rather than with slit scan or miniatures.
There’s good movies and there’s bad movies. The genres are never dead, it’s just about how to apply them and articulate them and execute them – the story, the quality of the writing, the acting, the design elements, the directorial execution – all these things make it what it is.
If I have a style, I am not aware of it.
Accessible design is good design.
The argument for intelligent design basically depends on saying, ‘You haven’t answered every question with evolution,’… Well, guess what? Science can’t answer every question.
My favorite days are the ones where I deal only with my own team, design, marketing, working on the next accessories collection.
