“To achieve great design, you need great business thinking/doing -- to effectively invest in design -- and you need great engineering -- to achieve unflagging performance.”
This is how US designer and technologist John Maeda, who served as a professor at the MIT Media Lab and as president of the Rhode Island School of Design, defined “great design.”
Design is no longer a decoration for products. Design has expanded upon its primary role and created collaborations with technology, leading in turn to the emergence of new industries.
