Day 6: The Jobs of Design Fundamentals





Today, I've been thinking about this quote about design...


"In most people's vocabularies, design means veneer. It's interior decorating. It's the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service."

- Steve Jobs
 February 24, 1955 - October 5, 2011

 Excerpt from Fortune Magazine, "Apple's One-Dollar-a-Year Man", January 24, 2000





Thanks for stopping by.
