Designers Defining Themselves
Throughout the process – the journey – of the creative process, designers are constantly defining themselves and redefining their work. We’ve culled a few observations from our Members, friends and Board Members. We hope it provides a glimmer of inspiration for you in your work and your life.
“Good design combines usefulness with at least one of the following: beauty, comfort, efficiency, economy, or durability.”

“Design is everywhere…It touches and affects everyone. Design is human-centered.”
