A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
The life of a designer is a life of fight: fight against the ugliness.
Color does not add a pleasant quality to design - it reinforces it.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.
The life of a designer is a life of fight. Fight against the ugliness. Just like a doctor fights against disease. For us, the visual disease is what we have around, and what we try to do is cure it somehow with design.
Designers can create normalcy out of chaos; they can clearly communicate ideas through the organising and manipulating of words and pictures.
A picture is worth a thousand words. An interface is worth a thousand pictures.
Design is in everything we make, but it's also between those things. It's a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy.
Design is where science and art break even.
You can have an art experience in front of a Rembrandt... or in front of a piece of graphic design.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
A designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist and evolutionary strategist.
Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.
A designer is a planner with an aesthetic sense.
An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
Art has to move you and design does not, unless it's a good design for a bus.
Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people.
