Inspiring Learning Design Quotes

Design is the application of intent - the opposite of happenstance, and an antidote to accident. - Robert L. Peters

Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service. - Steve Jobs

The only important thing about design is how it relates to people. - Victor Papenek

Design is where science and art break even. - Robin Mathew

People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It's not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn't know it was missing. 
- Paola Antonelli

Design is an opportunity to continue telling the story, not just to sum everything up. 
- Tate Linden

The life of a designer is a life of fight: fight against the ugliness.  - Massimo Vignelli
