Good design is…

Ten principles for good design by Braun’s industrial designer Dieter Rams:

Dieter Rams' Design Principles

  • Good design is innovative.
  • Good design makes a product useful.
  • Good design is aesthetic.
  • Good design makes a product understandable.
  • Good design is unobtrusive.
  • Good design is honest.
  • Good design has longevity.
  • Good design is consequent down to the last detail.
  • Good design is environmentally friendly.
  • Good design is as little design as possible.

It is surprising that all of these principles still make sense if we understand humanity as the pinnacle of God’s design. I think they resonate with the bible on how we humans should be.

It is because God’s design is good design. Indeed, tov meod (very good) design.
