The Mistake of Thinking Design

Steve Jobs

Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.


Jeffrey Zeldman

“Real web designers write code. Always have, always will.”

“Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.”

“Good web design is about the character of the content, not the character of the designer.”

Steve Krug

“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.”

“Get rid of half the words on each page, then get rid of half of what’s left.”

“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.”




Dieter Rams

Gentium Basic

I'm serious as a heart attack

My money's in that office, right? If she start giving me some bullshit about it ain't there, and we got to go someplace else and get it, I'm gonna shoot you in the head then and there. Then I'm gonna shoot that bitch in the kneecaps, find out where my goddamn money is. She gonna tell me too. Hey, look at me when I'm talking to you, motherfucker.

Are you ready for the truth?

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

Boy the way Glen Miller played. Songs that made the hit parade. Guys like us we had it made. Those were the days. A man is born he's a man of means. Then along come two they got nothin' but their jeans. The year is 1987 and NASA launches the last of Americas deep space probes? Maybe you and me were never meant to be. But baby think of me once in awhile. I'm at WKRP in Cincinnati.

Yeah. Roadie for Metallica. Speed of Sound Tour. We wanted to talk about little Larry. May we come in? I know how he likes to present himself; Father's weakness is vanity. Hence the slut. How's the smut business, Jackie? People forget that the brain is the biggest erogenous zone. Show me what you got. Nihilist. Dipshit with a nine-toed woman. The man is a sex offender. With a record.

…it [the Earth] diminished in size. Finally it shrank to the size of a marble, the most beautiful you can imagine. That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man.

When I orbited the Earth in a spaceship, I saw for the first time how beautiful our planet is. Mankind, let us preserve and increase this beauty, and not destroy it

Design is a formal response

“Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics.
Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.”

“Don't try to be original; just try to be good.”

“Everything is design. Everything!”

Jeremy Keith

The Web is responsive by default,
you make design decisions that screw it up.

The goal of the future is full unemployment,

That's why we have to destroy the present politico-economic system.

What separates design from art is that design is meant to be... functional.

Bredda Anancy and the Jerk Fowl

by Joelle "Wendy Wright"

Once upon a time, Brother Anancy and his good friend, Brother Lion were hungry and were in the mood for something tasty to eat. They decided that they wanted to have some chicken at Island Grill. Brother Anancy had just bought a sporty new car and offered to drive. But there was only one problem. Brother Anancy did not know how to get to Island Grill by car. Luckily, Brother Anancy's new car came equipped with a Jamaican GPS Navigation system. He was certain the GPS could get him to the restaurant.

I'm Batman

A little the worse for wear, I'm afraid.

Tomorrow, you will be released. If you are bored of brawling with thieves and want to achieve something there is a rare blue flower that grows on the eastern slopes. Pick one of these flowers. If you can carry it to the top of the mountain, you may find what you were looking for in the first place.

I've sewn you up, I've set your bones, but I won't bury you. I've buried enough members in the Wayne family.

Ah yes! I was wondering what would weight first. Your spirit... or your body?

Now choice is yours: exile or death?

But a man who doesn't care about the world doesn't spend half his fortune on a plan to save it. And isn't so wounded when it fails that he goes into hiding.

I'm Batman

I teach straying from me, yet who can stray from me? The big doors of the country-barn stand open and ready That I could look with a separate look on my own crucifixion and bloody crowning! And I or you pocketless of a dime may purchase the pick of the earth, Under Niagara, the cataract falling like a veil over my countenance.

We have an infinite amount to learn both from nature and from each other
