I would think twice about designing stuff for which there was no need and which didn't endure.
I don't start with a design objective, I start with a communication objective. I feel my project is successful if it communicates what it is supposed to communicate.
To whom does design address itself: to the greatest number, to the specialist of an enlightened matter, to a privileged social class? Design addresses itself to the need.
Good design doesn't date.
What is design? It's where you stand with a foot in two worlds - the world of technology and the world of people and human purposes - and you try to bring the two together.
The design of each element should be thought out in order to be easy to make and easy to repair.
Design is an unknown.
Designs of purely arbitrary nature cannot be expected to last long.
Design is people.
Great designers seldom make great advertising men, because they get overcome by the beauty of the picture - and forget that merchandise must be sold.
James Randolph Adams
To design the future effectively, you must first let go of your past.
Charles J. Givens
Design is everything. Everything!
A designer is only as good as the star who wears her clothes.
To design is to communicate clearly by whatever means you can control or master.
About half my designs are controlled fantasy, 15 percent are total madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs.
Outside of the chair, the teapot is the most ubiquitous and important design element in the domestic environment and almost everyone who has tackled the world of design has ended up designing one.
Design is directed toward human beings. To design is to solve human problems by identifying them and executing the best solution.
The urge for good design is the same as the urge to go on living.
