What's Good Design?

Lately I’ve been thinking about what good design is and what it isn’t. I’m sure you’ve encountered products that just FEEL right and those that don’t. What makes the difference? I personally believe it’s designing in such a way that values both function and user understanding equally.

My post this week talks about Dieter Ram’s rules for good design, how I apply it, and a product that I think demonstrates it.

P.S. I’m always interested in seeing other examples of good design. What are your favorites? Email me back and we can talk about it!

What I'm reading this week:

This week's favorite:

"I think the most important thing we've learned as we've grown is that we have to prioritize," said Sandberg. "We talk about it as ruthless prioritization. And by that what we mean is only do the very best of the ideas. Lots of times you have very good ideas. But they're not as good as the most important thing you could be doing. And you have to make the hard choices."
