I am convinced thet a good design should be based on reliable
and simple products, where beauty and technology perfectly intertwine,
but most of all a good design has to surpass fashion, to be modern but
long-lasting. When a design is “good”, it lasts and becomes a “good” business.The best way to define a Good Design is to quote Dieter Rams:
he loved listing 10 rules a designer should follow to achieve a Good Design:
Good design is innovative
Good design makes a product useful
Good design is aesthetic
Good design makes a product understandable
Good design is unobtrusive
Good design is honest
Good design is long-lasting
Good design is thorough down to the last detail
Good design is environmentally-friendly
Good design is as little design as possible
