Inspired by Design

Design is ubiquitous. It is in the magazines we read, the products we use, the services we enjoy and the consumer experiences that happen to us. Design is an intrinsic factor in the things we communicate, in advertisements, in the places we dwell and in nature itself. Design plays a very vital role in everything we see and perceive, and is prevalent in the very fabric of our lives.

Look around you: The evidence of design's power is everywhere. Customers expect, even demand, more from the design of everything they buy. Good design is not good enough anymore. Whether it's software or sippy cups, when something works right, looks right, and feels right, it sparks an emotional connection. People come to love it and loyalty soon follows.

This blog is a step towards realizing the true potential in understanding design, creativity and innovation and to applying those principles in life.
