Thursday's Quotables - Design

3/8/12 - Day Eighty Two

Thursday's Quotables ninth edition
The best advice can be found in quotes from those that learned before us.


Design is the search for a magical balance between business and art; art and craft; intuition and reason; concept and detail; playfulness and formality; client and designer; designer and printer; and printer and public.— Valerie Pettis

Good design is a lot like clear thinking made visual.— Edward Tufte

Design is about making things good (and then better) and right (and fantastic) for the people who use and encounter them.— Matt Beale

Art is like masturbation. It is selfish and introverted and done for you and you alone. Design is like sex. There is someone else involved, their needs are just as important as your own, and if everything goes right, both parties are happy in the end.— Colin Wright

'til next time...
