On Design

Rebekah Cox at Quora has an excellent blog on Design. A few good points from the blog:

  • Design is a set of decisions about a product.
    • It’s not an interface or an aesthetic, it’s not a brand or a color. Design is the actual decisions.
    • It imposes a clear relationship between a product and its interface. The ultimate expression of your product isn’t any one big thing; it’s the sum of all the little decisions you’ve made along the way.
  • Great design is all the work you don’t ask the people who use your products to do.
  • The problems we decide to solve are as important as how we solve them.
