Design is a great word. Basically it means distinctive marking. And, in the way these things go,
the word itself accreted new meanings, until it has become the designator for a process of declaring intent.
That's what design, as a verb, is: Drawings, or specifications, executed in the service of making a
thing, be it a software system, a saltshaker, a house, or a space station. To design is to plan to make.
So, some points:
- Your outcome will be as clear as your design.
- If your design assumptions fail to take reality into consideration, your outcome will be missing that as well.
- The first step in improving your design is writing it down.
- If you are designing a practical item, the first question you need to answer is
"What problem am I trying to solve?"
