Recently, I rewatched a documentary by Gary Hustwit titled “Objectified” on Netflix. This was the first time I had watched the film since my days in design school.
After watching the film, I was struck with how powerful the interview with Dieter Rams (German Industrial Designer for Braun) was. He mentioned ten principles that make good design, pinpointing that design is not just looking good, but it functions to. It really made me think and begin to evaluate my own designs and design process.
