One Day for Design

Published on April 13th, 2011

Today was One Day for Design (#1D4D on Twitter). One Day for Design is a open, global discussion about the meaning and future of professional design associations. There we’re a lot of interesting discussions going on on Twitter. Some of the highlights.

“Designers take things apart, evaluate them & put them back together, in a different order. That is how we understand product & process.”

— Erik Spiekermann

“There are those who talk about creating, and those who create.”

— James White

Interesting train of thought going on here by James but I can’t say I agree. Communication about creation should be parallel with creation as creation is a way of communication (albeit mostly non-verbal).

“I tell my clients that it’s impossible to redesign anything without upsetting somebody.”

— David Hillman

Although I didn’t join in today (busy day at work) I really enjoyed some of the insights. I hope you do as well.
