  • 5. Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service. It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them. Steve Jobs 5
  • 6. People ignore the design that ignores people. Frank Chimero Design is in everything we make, but it's also between those things, it's a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy. Erik Adigard Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose. Charles Eames Everything is designed. Few things are designed well. Brian Reed There is no design without discipline. There is no discipline without intelligence. Massimo Vignelli 6
  • 7. Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent. Joe Sparano The most innovative designers consciously reject the standard option box and cultivate an appetite for thinking wrong. Marty Neumeier Design is where science and art break even. Robin Mathew Good design goes to heaven; bad design goes everywhere. Mieke Gerritzen A designer is a planner with an aesthetic sense. Bruno Munari 7
  • 8. Design is the application of intent - the opposite of happenstance, and an antidote to accident. Robert L. Peters 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 Design should never say, ”Look at me.”•It should always say, ”Look at this.”• David Craib Bad design is smoke, while good design is a mirror. Juan-Carlos Fernandez 8
  • 9. Don’t design for everyone. It’s impossible. All you end up doing is designing something that makes everyone unhappy. Leisa Reichelt Design is as much an act of spacing as an act of marking. Ellen Lupton The design process, at its best, integrates the aspirations of art, science, and culture. Jeff Smith Good design is a lot like clear thinking made visual. Edward Tufte Design is intelligence made visible. Alina Wheeler 9
  • 10. Math is easy; design is hard. Jeffrey Veen Design is the conscious effort to impose a meaningful order. Victor Papanek Design trends online change more often than the wind, and slightly less often than my socks. Suleiman Leadbitter Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration. Jeffrey Zeldman People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It’s not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn’t know it was missing. Paola Antonelli 10
  • 11. Design is an opportunity to continue telling the story, not just to sum everything up. Tate Linden Design is not the narrow application of formal skills, it is a way of thinking. Chris Pullman Designers are meant to be loved, not to be understood. Fabien Barral Design is about making things good (and then better) and right (and fantastic) for the people who use and encounter them. Matt Beale I’m convinced that without bad design, the world would be a far less stimulating place; we would have nothing to marvel over and nothing to be nostalgic about. Carrie Phillips 11
  • 12. Behavioral design is all about feeling in control. Includes: usability, understanding, but also the feel. Don Norman Behavioral design is all about feeling in control. Includes: usability, understanding, but also the feel. Don Norman Good design must be defined by appropriateness to audience and goals, and by its effectiveness, not by its adherence to Swiss design or the number of awards it wins. Drew Davies Being a famous designer is like being a famous dentist. Noreen Morioka Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future. Robert L. Peters 12
  • 13. It’s art if can’t be explained. It’s fashion if no one asks for an explanation. It’s design if it doesn’t need explanation. Wouter Stokkel You can’t do better design with a computer, but you can speed up your work enormously. Wim Crouwel I love the comment, “You must love designing for a living.”•At that point I usually start to laugh or break into uncontrollable tears. Andrew Lewis The dumbest mistake is viewing design as something you do at the end of the process to ‘tidy up’ the mess, as opposed to understanding it’s a ‘day one’ issue and part of everything. Tom Peters 13
  • 14. Designers have a dual duty; contractually to their clients and morally to the later users and recipients of their work. Hans Höger Computers are to design as microwaves are to cooking. Milton Glaser I find modernist design boring, but it so much faster! Christine Suewon Lee A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. Douglas Adams 14 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
  • 15. A designer can mull over complicated designs for months. Then suddenly the simple, elegant, beautiful solution occurs to him. When it happens to you, it feels as if God is talking! And maybe He is. Leo Frankowski For me, design is like choosing what I’m going to wear for the day - only much more complicated and not really the same at all. Robynne Raye Design is a means toward accomplishing the end goals of serving markets and generating profits. Furthermore, design is an element in social responsibility. Good design allows “form to complement performance.” The way things look is not irrelevant to the way things work: how they work is how they should look. Thomas F. Schutte 15 A camel is a horse designed by a committee. Sir Alec Issigonis
  • 16. Many desperate acts of design (including gradients, drop shadows, and the gratuitous use of transparency) are perpetuated in the absence of a strong concept. A good idea provides a framework for design decisions, guiding the work. Noreen Morioka I would show my jobs to my mother, and she would always say the same thing: “That’s nice dear.”•And then she would say, ”Did you write it?”•or “Did you do the drawing?”•or ‘Did you take the pictures?”•I’d always answer “no,”•then I realized the problem. My answer was then, “I made this happen. It’s called design.”• Brian Webb Most [clients] expect experience design to be a discrete activity, solving all their problems with a single functional specification or a single research study. It must be an ongoing effort, a process of continually learning about users, responding to their behaviors, and evolving the product or service. Dan Brown 16
  • 17. Technology over technique produces emotionless design. Daniel Mall I think design covers so much more than the aesthetic. Design is fundamentally more. Design is usability. It is Information Architecture. It is Accessibility. This is all design. Mark Boulton A design isn’t finished until somebody is using it. Brenda Laurel The life of a designer is a life of fight: fight against the ugliness. Massimo Vignelli If design isn’t profitable, then it’s art. Henrik Fiskar Good design is all about making other designers feel like idiots because that idea wasn’t theirs. Frank Chimero 17
  • 18. A well-designed text will seem weightless after a time; the initial feel of the book fades away as the mind becomes engrossed in the words. Mandy Brown Graphic design will save the world right after rock and roll does. David Carson Practice safe design: Use a concept. Petrula Vrontikis Create your own visual style; let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others. Orson Welles Good design keeps the user happy, the manufacturer in the black and the aesthete unoffended. Raymond Loewy 18
  • 19. Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan. Eliel Saarinen Truly elegant design incorporates top-notch functionality into a simple, uncluttered form. David Lewis A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. Antoine de Saint-Exupery Designers think everything done by someone else is awful, and that they could do it better themselves, which explains why I designed my own living room carpet, I suppose. Chris Bangle 19
  • 20. Good designs come from the heart, not from the brain. Danny Sengers Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working. Pablo Picasso At a meta level, design connects the dots between mere survival and humanism. Erik Adigard To say that something is designed means it has intentions that go beyond its function. Otherwise it’s just planning. Ayse Birsel No design works unless it embodies ideas that are held common by the people for whom the object is intended. Adrian Forty 20
  • 21. Many things difficult to design prove easy to perform. Samuel Johnson The designer is a visually literate person, just as an editor is expected by training and inclination to be versed in language and literature, but to call the former an artist by occupation is as absurd as to refer to the latter as a poet. Douglas Martin Design is easy. All you do is stare at the screen until drops of blood form on your forehead. Marty Neumeier The only important thing about design is how it relates to people. Victor Papanek Our opportunity, as designers, is to learn how to handle the complexity, rather than shy away from it, and to realize that the big art of design is to make complicated things simple. Tim Parsey 21
  • 22. The public is more familiar with bad design than good design. It is, in effect, conditioned to prefer bad design, because that is what it lives with. He new becomes threatening, the old reassuring. Paul Rand Art is an idea that has found its perfect visual expression. And design is the vehicle by which this expression is made possible. Art is a noun, and design is a noun and also a verb. Art is a product and design is a process. Design is the foundation of all the arts. Paul Rand Designing a product is designing a relationship. Steve Rogers It is easy to fail when designing an interactive experience. Designers fail when they do not know the audience, integrate the threads of content and context, welcome the public properly, or make clear what the experience is and what the audience’s role in it will be. Edwin Schlossberg 22
  • 23. Good design is good business. Thomas J. Watson Jr. Great design will not sell an inferior product, but it will enable a great product to achieve its maximum potential. Thomas J. Watson Jr. I never design a building before I’ve seen the site and met the people who will be using it. Frank Lloyd Wright You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face. Eleanor Roosevelt Fall down seven times, get up eight Japanese Proverb 23
  • 24. Don’t worry about people stealing your design work. Worry about the day they stop Jeffrey Zeldman Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication Leonardo Da Vinci If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them Bruce Lee The worst logo applied well is better than the best logo applied poorly Jacob Cass I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it Pablo Picasso 24
  • 25. Supposing is good, but finding out is better Mark Twain Do not seek to change what has come before. Seek to create that which has not David Airey Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover Mark Twain Owning a camera doesn’t make you a photographer Gabriel Von Satzger When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what? Sydney Harris 25
  • 26. Technology over technique produces emotionless design Daniel Mall Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great Mark Twain Be stimulated by rejection Bob Gill Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; it is the only means Albert Einstein Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; it is the only means Albert Einstein 26
  • 27. An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it Bill Bernbach Many great ideas go unexecuted, and many great executioners are without ideas. One without the other is worthless Tim Blixseth Don’t let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was Richard L. Evans Stop looking at yourself as a designer, and start thinking of yourself as a deliverer of ideas Stle Melvr Sometimes even to live is an act of courage Seneca 27
  • 28. Defeat is not bitter unless you swallow it Joe Clark Those who wish to sing, always find a song Swedish Proverb Have the passion, take the action and magic will happen Bar Rafaeli If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got Albert Einstein How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world Anne Frank Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, nor a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything Napoleon Hill 28
  • 29. Form follows function Louis Sullivan Vision without action is daydream. Action without vision is nightmare Japanese Proverb Design is where science and art break even Robin Mathew You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take Wayne Gretzky Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever Lance Armstrong Imagination is more important than knowledge Albert Einstein Laugh at yourself, but don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory Alan Alda 29
  • 30. When you play it too safe, you’re taking the biggest risk of your life. Time is the only wealth we’re given Barbara Sher You have to be able to risk your identity for a bigger future than the present you are living Fernando Flores The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook William James He who risks and fails can be forgiven. He who never risks and never fails is a failure in his whole being Paul Tillich You must lose a fly to catch a trout George Herbert When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap. Cynthia Heimel 30
  • 31. To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself Soren Kierkegaard We shall have no better conditions in the future if we are satisfied with all those which we have at present Thomas Edison The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore Vincent van Gogh He who dares… Wins! Del Boy Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter Mark Twain The most important thing to remember is this: to be ready at any moment to give up what you are for what you might become. W. E. B. Du Bois 31
  • 32. People wish to be settled: only as far as they are unsettled is there any hope for them Ralph Waldo Emerson Play the game for more than you can afford to lose… only then will you learn the game Winston Churchill The opposite of play is not work — it’s depression Stuart Brown I believe in getting into hot water; it keeps you clean G.K. Chesterton Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go T. S. Eliot If you never budge, don’t expect a push Malcolm S. Forbes 32
  • 33. Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out James B. Color does not add a pleasant quality to design – it reinforces it Pierre Bonnard It is better to be boldly decisive and risk being wrong than to agonize at length and be right too late Marilyn Moats Kennedy Success is not to be measured by the position someone has reached in life, but the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed Booker T. Washington If you want to stand out, don’t be different. Be outstanding. Meredith West The dangers of life are infinite, and among them is safety Goethe 33
  • 34. The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will Vince Lombardi If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary Jim Rohn I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure–which is: Try to please everybody. Herbert Bayard Swope No design works unless it embodies ideas that are held common by the people for whom the object is intended Adrian Forty Success does not consist in never making blunders, but in never making the same one a second time Josh Billings 34
  • 35. If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up J.M. Power If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success Malcolm X Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing Denis Waitley Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase Martin Luther King, Jr What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals Goethe Stumbling is not falling Malcolm X 35
  • 36. Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor Truman Capote I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion Muhammad Ali Klay Stumbling is not falling Malcolm X There’s something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk Drew Barrymore I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was. Muhammad Ali Klay The man who has no imagination has no wings Muhammad Ali Klay 36
  • 37. I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed Michael Jordan Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe Abraham Lincoln 37 Less is more. Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe Inspiration starts somewhere. Bill Gates You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. Bruce Lee
  • 38. Creativity is magical, but is not magic Charles Limb If you look at any designer you admire, whose work inspires you, and whose approach somehow resonates with you, I promise you'll find a person who does not think of what they do as just their job Alexander Isley Good art inspires; good design motivates. Otl Aicher In design, there is no such thing as “rules”. There is however, common sense. Ken Dyment Simplicity is not about making something without ornament, but rather about making something very complex, then slicing elements away, until you reveal the very essence. Christoph Niemann 38
  • 39. Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works. Steve Jobs Design is thinking made visual. Saul Bass Don't stare at a blank page for too long, be bold, and make the first incisive stroke. The rest will come naturally. James Kingman Design is as much a matter of finding problems as it is solving them. Bryan Lawson Design should never say, “Look at me.” It should always say, “Look at this.” David Craib The proper study of mankind is the science of design. Herbert Simon 39
  • 40. A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. Douglas Adams Good design begins with honesty, asks tough questions, comes from collaboration and from trusting your intuition. Freeman Thomas I like design, I like details, to me it is just another form of self-expression. John Malkovich Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era – it's a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good. Clement Mok Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose. Charles Eames 40
  • 41. Mistakes are the portals of discovery. James Joyce Right and wrong do not exist in graphic design. There is only effective and non-effective communication. Peter Bilak Don't try and reinvent the wheel – just work on making it better than anyone else. David A. Stuebe Listen to you client, take into consideration all of their input, weigh the options, study the details, know the target audience, and then, if necessary, ignore all of it and design what you think will work best. Von R. Glitschka No, Watson, this was not done by accident, but by design. Sherlock Holmes 41 Have no fear of perfection – you'll never reach it. Salvador Dali
  • 42. Heaven, I believe, is right here, just waiting for us to create it. Jesse Scaccia Good, fast or cheap... pick two. Old Adage The conclusion of design flows naturally from the data; we should not shrink from it; we should embrace it and build on it. Michael Behe The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before. Neil Gaiman It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. Henry David Thoreau Good design is partially creativity and innovation, but primarily knowledge and awareness. Chuck Green 42
  • 43. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; and optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Winston Churchill Everything that can be said, can be said clearly. Ludwig Wittgenstein Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous. Bill Moyers Web design is art wrapped in technology. James Weaver Clients are full of surprises. Design is what you make of the surprises. Dan Phillips Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence. Osho 43
  • 44. You mix a bunch of ingredients, and once in a great while, chemistry happens. Bill Watterson You mix a bunch of ingredients, and once in a great while, chemistry happens. Bill Watterson I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. Confucius What makes great design great is not a trendy technique, but the logic and conceptual aspect that were figured out in the designer's mind – or more likely, on paper – before a mouse cursor ever opened Photoshop. Kyle Meyer 44 What separates design from art is that design is meant to be... functional. Cameron Moll
  • 45. Design is the key to everything. If you learn how to design you can do anything. Doug Cranmer To create a memorable design you need to start with a thought that's worth remembering. Thomas Manss Where you innovate, how you innovate, and what you innovate are design problems. Tim Brown Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep. Scott Adams I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way – things I had no words for. Georgia O'Keeffe 45
  • 46. Without good design it is easy to miss the point. Bjarni Wark It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen. Coach John Wooden A good design can feel like something you have always been waiting for without knowing. Paul Huizinga Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see. Arthur Schopenhauer Form follows function – that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union. Frank Lloyd Wright When we engage in what we are naturally suited to do, our work takes on the quality of play and it is play that stimulates creativity. Linda Naiman 46
  • 47. There's a difference between being obsessed and being motivated. Mark Zuckerburg Beautiful accidents can happen, but accident is not the basis for design excellence. Purposeful discovery followed by focused, skillful conceptualization and execution is the basis for design excellence. Andy Rutledge A designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist and evolutionary strategist. Buckminster Fuller Graphic design has been likened to a wine glass. When we drink wine we barely notice the glass it's served in. It wouldn't be true to say that we don't care what glass we drink out of – we wouldn't choose to drink a rare vintage out of a Tupperware mug, for example - but it's the wine that matters, not the vessel it comes in. Adrian Shaughnessy Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself. Eleanor Roosevelt 47
  • 48. Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated. Paul Rand Graphic designers are idea embalmers, loving undertakers preserving bits of data like to many butterflies pinned to felt in a jewel box. Paul Saffo Design in art, is a recognition of the relation between various things, various elements in the creative flux. You can't invent a design. You recognize it, in the fourth dimension. That is, with your blood and your bones, as well as with your eyes. D. H. Lawrence The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller 48
  • 49. The sudden hunch, the creative leap of mind that “sees” in a flash how to solve a problem in a simple way, is something quite different from general intelligence. Martin Gardner Questions about whether design is necessary or affordable are quite beside the point: design is inevitable. The alternative to good design is bad design, not no design at all. Douglas Martin A good designer may not have all the answers, but he knows which questions to ask.- Rudy Duke Rudy Duke Designers can create normalcy out of chaos; they can clearly communicate ideas through the organizing and manipulating of words and pictures. Jeffrey Veen 49
  • 50. Designers deal in ideas. They give shape to ideas that shape our world, enrich everyday experiences, and improve our lives. Where there's confusion, designers fashion clarity; where there's chaos, designers construct order; where there's entropy, designers promote vitality; there there's indifference, designers swell passion; where there's mediocrity, designers imbue excellence; and where there's silence, designers lend voice. Ken Peters Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity. Charles Mingus I believe that website design is the dynamic interactive tool inspired from different elements to drive business overseas. Ahmed Abdelhameed 50
  • 51. You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality. Walt Disney What I’m trying to produce is the visual equivalent of the chord change that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Rian Hughes Just because you’ve always done it that way doesn’t mean it’s not incredibly stupid. Despair Poster Design is a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy. Erik Adigard Design is the concious effort to impose a meaninful order. Victor Papanek A picture is worth a thousand words. An interface is worth a thousand pictures. Ben Shneiderman 51
  • 52. Everybody is a user experience designer. Whitney Hess There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion. Francis Bacon You have to be interested in culture to design for it. Lorraine Wild Architecture is the reaching out for the truth. Louis I. Kahn Think 8 hours, work 2 hours. Mirko Ilic I really like looking at design and thinking: that attention to detail must have taken absolutely ages. Si Scott 52 Photoshop is a privilege, not a right. Dork Tower
  • 53. Design is directed toward human beings. To design is to solve human problems by identifying them and executing the best solution. Ivan Chermayeff We are all designers, the difference is that only a few of us do it full-time. Sabo Tercero Being a designer is like being a porn star. You’re hot & popular for a year or two, then everyone goes off and finds something new to screw around too. Jason Demetillo I’m creative because I did an icon navigation while everyone else on the planet sticks to words? No, it just means I didn’t want to stick to convention. If anything you can call it rebellious but certainly not creative. Paul Scrivens 53
  • 54. That’s what all we are: amateurs. We don’t live long enough to be anything else. Charlie Chaplin It took me a few seconds to draw it, but it took me 34 years to learn how to draw it in a few seconds. Paula Scher The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources. Albert Einstein Inspiration is hogwash. My work comes directly out of my loves and hates. Muses don’t whisper in my ear, and ideas don’t flow over my body like a cool rain. James Victore Your opinion won’t matter. It’s important that you prove your point with numbers. Samantha LeVan 54
  • 55. Inspiration the seed. Design but the flower. Michael Langham Typography at its best is a visual form of language linking timelessness and time. Robert Bringhurst Delay always breeds danger; and to protract a great design is often to ruin it. Miguel de Cervantes What I love about design is the artistic and scientific complexity that also becomes useful… Michelle Obama The more uninteresting the letter, the more useful it is to the typographer. Piet Zwart A healthy creative process should be able to give a coherent rationale to a client as to why you designed what you designed. Von Glitschka 55
  • 56. 56 This is the web. Fix it. Luke Wroblewski Creativity is in everyone; it just manifests itself differently with each person. My CPA, for example, is one of the most creative people I know. Ron Miriello If there's one thing you learn by working on a lot of different Web sites, it's that almost any design idea--no matter how appallingly bad--can be made usable in the right circumstances, with enough effort. Steve Krug Intuitive design is how we give the user new superpowers. Jared Spool Designers love subtle cues, because subtlety is one of the traits of sophisticated design. But Web users are generally in such a hurry that they routinely miss subtle cues. Steve Krug
  • 57. The problem is there are no simple “right” answers for most Web design questions (at least not for the important ones). What works is good, integrated design that fills a need—carefully thought out, well executed, and tested. As a rule, conventions only become conventions if they work. It doesn’t matter how many times I have to click, as long as each click is a mindless, unambiguous choice. In reality, though, most of the time we don’t choose the best option—we choose the first reasonable option, a strategy known as satisficing. If you want a great site, you’ve got to test. After you’ve worked on a site for even a few weeks, you can’t see it freshly anymore. You know too much. The only way to find out if it really works is to test it. Steve Krug 57
  • 58. Websites should look good from the inside and out. Websites promote you 24/7: No employee will do that. A website without SEO is like a car with no gas. Running a business without marketing will kill it. Great web design without functionality is like a sports car with no engine. Paul Cookson Most sites need to prevent breadth — many many pages that are organized cohesively. A site that presents a single webpage is unlikely to present sufficient depth of content to justify extensive SEO. The SCO trick is to draw traffic with desirable content, and to ’seduce’ the traffic into portions of the site that may not directly have anything to do with the content — this is the ultimate goal of the SEO campaign.

  • 59. Visual design is often the polar opposite of engineering: trading hard edges for subjective decisions based on gut feelings and personal experiences. It’s messy, unpredictable, and notoriously hard to measure. The apparently erratic behavior of artists drives engineers bananas. Their decisions seem arbitrary and risk everything with no guaranteed benefit. Scott Stevenson Remember, the web isn't about control. If a visitor to your site is familiar with using a browser's native form doodad, you won't be doing them any favors if you override the browser functionality with your own widget, even if you think your widget looks better. Jeremy Keith The site's look and feel (and overall UX) feels 10 years old. I wouldn't trust the content EVEN if it were great, because the UX is so rough. Rand Fishkin 59
  • 60. Why is it when some people decide to ask for some action, they lose their minds on the appearance of the page? Bad fonts, garish colors, cheap highlighting, and silly clip art do not make for better conversions in most cases. What they do is crush your credibility Brian Clark The other big factor in building trust quickly is site design quality. has one of the best graphic designers ever (Jason Putorti) – he cares about every pixel, all the fonts, all the transparencies and effects. And that shows instantly. People do make judgments of trust on appearance – in the real world and online. Aaron Patzer When a designer gives you a bill, what do you see it as? An expense, right? When a designer gives me a bill, I see it as an investment. For me, it is something that appreciates and helps your business grow. Neil Patel 60
  • 61. The difference between a Designer and Developer, when it comes to design skills, is the difference between shooting a bullet and throwing it. Scott Hanselman Web design is the creation of digital environments that facilitate and encourage human activity; reflect or adapt to individual voices and content; and change gracefully over time while always retaining their identity. Good Web design is about the character of the content, not the character of the designer. Jeffrey Zeldman ​In my experience, too many small business owners either spend too little on their website (and hence miss an important opportunity to leverage the Internet) or they spend too much in the wrong places.

  • 62. Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. 
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
 While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. Apple Commercial 62
