and the removal of everything that could possibly hinder the
user from accomplishing their goals- it is back to purity and simplicity. "The Banal discussion "The banal discussion around the notion that form follows function is completely irrelevant considering sophisticated products with complex subjects, digital components, and nearly mythological hyper-objects that engage little interaction, if any...form follows subject." "Good design makes a product understandable"- questions arrise, is it neccesary- the final goal is to make the product speak for itself.

"Good design should be both neutral and restrained, leaving room for the user's self expression" "Sensual minimialism- I like design that traverses boundaries of the associative and touches on the sensual, one that goes beyond the modernist docrine of almost nothing."

"Minimalism is dead- it is too austere for the average person." "Good design is thorough down to the last detail."- requires considering strategies that apply across all aspects of object

"Good design is environmentally friendly"- "conserve resources and minimises visual polution" "We have addressed all of the worlds problems. Now design is not about solving problems but is about a rigorous beautification of our built environments."

"I beleive in a NUTOPIA- a place of the future where everything is beautiful, romantic, positive, energetic, intellectual, and sensual...a desire for people to live in a contemporary world and release themselves from nostalgia." “Being creative is not about being able to come up with great ideas, drawing, models, or products but being able to naturally live the lifestyle of creation” “Creativity is developed through inspiring objects, places, and spaces. Visual beauty is a key element to design because technically that is what consumers see first” "There is a balance to be found when designing industrial products. The balance between function and aesthetics which one may override the other at times." " Products should be understanable and easy to operate. As future industrial designers it is our responsibilty to allow products to solve complications, not create new ones." "In any design, if the idea can't be sold then its only good as the paper its written on." "Designs should fit into users environment and allow them to communicate and interact personal charcteristics with others." “Form and Fuction are not mutually exclusive. It is a matter of balancing these two into the esthetic content with regard to use. Form should facilitate the ease of use for a user and not distract from the products purpose.” "Form is just rofm rearranged" "Designs should resonate on a level that inspires and engages the user on a deep and personal level. Simply putting a variation on an existing theme is far easier than a truly novel idea." "It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly." "It is the role of the designer to recognize the complex and true problems of today, look at them in context, and consult with different disciplines to find solutions. This involves a continual need to ask questions and consult problems such as overproduction, health, and poverty." "So, in addition to creating artefacts with a specific function, designers are also in the game of making those artefacts meaningful...design produces meaning through encoding artefacts with symbolic significance; it gives functional artefacts a symbolic form." Paul Du Gay "How a diverse and thoughtful variety of routes could bring a richness and depth to the creation of our material culture so that it is not only environmentally and socially friendly but also aesthetically expressive of the ethical core at the heart of sustainability." Stuart Walker "Designers should update the concept and meaning of being a designer today, accepting that the fact of having to deal with different other players who, despite not being professional of design are, nonetheless, designers in their own right." Ezio Manzini "The spiritual benefits that can be wrought by the arts are not always second to our physical needs." Earl Tai Innovative
