Design Quotes

“To design is to communicate clearly by whatever means you can control or master”
—Milton Glaser

“We require from buildings two kinds of goodness: first, the doing their practical duty well: then that they be graceful and pleasing in doing it.”
—John Ruskin, 1880

“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, 1989

LisaJay said...

p.s., and I don't even know what a wunderkammer is. . .

LisaJay said...

babelfish translates it as "miracle chamber," which I'm sure is wrong (it being babelfish), but what a wonderful phrase anyway!
