Good Design

L 2 speaker, 1958, by Dieter Rams for Braun

What is good design? A question many designers ask about their own designs as well as what is in the world around them. Back in the early 80s, the designer Dieter Rams drew up ten principles for what he considered good design. Click here to read what are considered the "Ten commandments." Really brilliant. The above speaker is one of my favs of Dieter Rams' work. Straight forward, clean, bold and beautiful. Found this interview on one of my fav blogs and daily reads: Swissmiss Tina Roth Eisenberg, not only has a incredible design sense, but an incredible sense of humor as well.
