I love design.
I love design.
No architect troubled to design houses that suited people who were to live in them, because that would have meant building a whole range of different houses. It was far cheaper and, above all, timesaving to make them identical.
Computers are to design as microwaves are to cooking.
That was always my frustration with so many of these shows, because design is not an ambush… it’s a relationship. You have to know how people move and live and work to be able to design for them.
At the University of Maryland, my first year I started off planning to major in art because I was interested in theatre design, stage design or television design.
All those involved in the construction of an architectural design, from the architect to the builder, have an attachment to the architecture, although it’s difficult to quantify the attachment.
Luckily I don’t have to buy shoes anymore, because I design them! I’m off tour, so I can dive in and create the shoes that I want for my line. But okay, I did buy a pair of vintage combat boots because they were so beaten up – I had to have them.
Actually, I didn’t make the claim that Ruby follows the principle of least surprise. Someone felt the design of Ruby follows that philosophy, so they started saying that. I didn’t bring that up, actually.
Everyone designs who devises courses of action aimed at changing existing situations into preferred ones.
God is His own Design and End, and that there is no other Worthy of Him.
People tell you the world looks a certain way. Parents tell you how to think. Schools tell you how to think. TV. Religion. And then at a certain point, if you’re lucky, you realize you can make up your own mind. Nobody sets the rules but you. You can design your own life.
Usually I design the lighting and when I have the physical set there, I’m not good at going out loosely and saying, ‘Do you what you want, give it to the editor, and he’ll figure it out.’ I physically then walk on with the actors and I say, ‘Let’s walk until you guys feel the space works for you, and tell me when all that happens.’
Language, philosophy, and science are interwoven into the design of words, which are manipulated to create surprising illusions.
A purpose, an intention, a design, strikes everywhere even the careless, the most stupid thinker.
Dubstep has everything for me. Rhythm, sound design, heartfelt emotion – all in one place.
Let it be your constant method to look into the design of people’s actions, and see what they would be at, as often as it is practicable and to make this custom the more significant, practice it first upon yourself.
Throughout the country, I see the same design problems and solutions over and over.
Even private persons in due season, with discretion and temper, may reprove others, whom they observe to commit sin, or follow bad courses, out of charitable design, and with hope to reclaim them.
I’m drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale.
So if I want to buy a light in a shop and I don’t find a light that I like, I think to myself what would I like? What would I like to buy? Then I started to imagine and design it for myself a lot of the time.
I’d like to design something like a city or a museum. I want to do something hands on rather than just play golf which is the sport of the religious right.
Marc Jacobs is full of creative people and Louis Vuitton is again a name on the door, a name that has existed for many years but I’m a collaborator there and I bring in other people, other artists and I work with a great creative design team.
I have had this view of the optimization of the electrode design for a long time. Historically we went through various phases in the work and eventually worked on large sheets – very large sheets – of palladium.
My particular aesthetic of light and color and design wouldn’t change as a result of working with computer graphics rather than with slit scan or miniatures.
When I come to a design decision, people know that is that.
