Do Design: Why beauty is key to everything | Author: Alan Moore

With examples including Pixar, Apple, Yeo Valley and Blitz Motorcycles, we are encouraged to ask: is it useful and considered. Is it a thing of beauty? Do Design you will inspire you to improve your creative process, raise the quality and craft of your work, consider the experience as much as the product and adopt simplicity, utility and honesty as guiding principlesAuthor: Alan Moore
