Dieter Rams on design

Via Gong Szetzo, we have ten principles of good design from the legendary Dieter Rams.

Good design
  1. is innovative
  2. makes a product useful
  3. is aesthetic
  4. makes a product understandable
  5. is unobtrusive
  6. is honest
  7. is long-lasting
  8. is thorough down to the last detail
  9. is environmentally-friendly
  10. is as little design as possible

Gong tells us:

No need to buy any books on the subject. This is pretty much all one needs to know.
