design philosophy

I’ve spent some time reorganizing the Quotes page to give the content direction and hierarchy. Since there were so many, I had to print them out and color code them based on category (design, simplicity, invention, art, life advice, passages from books, etc). Think of this list as a found poem.

Read the full list


a few highlights:

“Creativity is people who care enough to keep thinking about something until they find the simplest way to do it.”
— Tim Cook

“A grid is like underwear, you wear it but it’s not to be exposed.”
— Massimo Vignelli

“Our role is to imagine products that don’t exist and guide them to life.”
— Christopher Stringer

“The details are not the details. They make the design.”
— Charles Eames

“The more I learn, the less I realize I know.”
— Socrates

“Comparison is the thief of joy.”
— Theodore Roosevelt

“One should always be a little improbable.”
— Oscar Wilde
