Design Philosophy

What Design Is Not

Before getting into the details we need to clarify what design is about.

  1. Design is not something you can add later. Design is an integral part of building something. It's not just colors and fonts, design is how things work. When you add a button to your application, that is design. You made a decision to add a button with a particular label, icon, location and size. The decisions you make are designs.

  2. Design is not an opinion Design is testable, therefore one design will meet a specific goal better than another one. Design is about solving a specific problem and so you can objectively compare the effectiveness of two designs at solving those problems.
