  20. 20. Design + business<br />“Design is intrinsically linked to a company’s ability to meet its business goals and achieve its mission. Done well, design can become a strategic resource to produce the kind of innovative customer experience that strengthens global brands …”<br />Peter Lawrence / CEO, Corporate Design Foundation<br />We became a $6.5 billion brand because of Design. If we were just a value player, where would we be today?”<br />Jenny Ming / President, Old Navy<br />“ … Design-oriented firms in all kinds of industries outperform their more traditional peers … design and innovation go hand-in-hand with financial success.”<br />Robert Safian / Fast Company, Masters of Design issue<br />

  23. 23. “ … it’s a matter of discipline, and it starts by looking at the problem and collecting information about it. If you understand the problem, you have the solution. It’s really more about logic than imagination.” <br />Massimo Vignelli / designer<br />designed NYC subway map / American Airlines id / Bloomingdale’s id<br />
  24. 24. Design is … <br />closer to “Strategy” than it is to “Art Direction” <br />about solving a problem and NOT about “decoration” (thinking vs. just doing)<br />focused on understanding the needs/desires of the audience/consumer/user<br />rooted in long-term impact and effects <br />differentiating<br />And it does …<br />drive innovation<br />
  25. 25. Designing normally requires a designer to consider the aesthetic, functional, and many other aspects of an object or a process, which usually requires considerable research, thought, modeling, interactive adjustment, and re-design.<br />Wikipedia / definition of design <br />

  27. 27. Good Design starts with “understanding”<br />(audience + objectives)<br />
  28. 28. and results in a meaningful solution.<br />And ends with a beautiful solution (the union of aesthetic form + function)<br />
  29. 29. “Contrary to popular belief, designers are not artists. They employ artistic methods to visualize thinking and process, but unlike artists, they work to solve a client’s problem, not present their own view of the world.”<br />Erik Spiekermann / designer<br />What to remember.<br />
