Motivational Mondays #4

Posted: October 20, 2014 by Chynnie in Motivational Mondays


We are here again, the beginning of a new week. Hopefully you had a good weekend, so hopefully you are ready for the week. These are my selected quotes for you. Have each and everyone of them in mind as you go about your designs this week.

1. Good design is making something intelligible and memorable. Great design is making something memorable and meaningful.

-Dieter Rams

2. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

– Leonardo Da Vinci

3. The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.

– Hans Hofmann

4. Don’t worry about people stealing your design work. Worry about the day they stop.

– Jeffrey Zeldman

Great designs ain’t just memorable, they are meaningful.

We all know that less is more, so let your design be as simple as ever. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication….we can see that in modern architecture designs.

Don’t worry about people stealing your designs, (especially students working in the studio), we always worry about that. But Jeffrey Zeldman says worry about the day they stop stealing your design. At that point, you know your designs makes no sense anymore.

Have a great week people…………xoxo.
