I believe good design...


Advances and improves with technology. Much like how a great tool is pointless if not used correctly, design's significance is in crafting meaningful experiences for users that unlocks technology's potentials.

Complements natural human behavior and doesn't offset it. Technology should be there to support us and allow us to become better humans.

Comes from deeper understanding. Much of the rationale for design should come from understanding user needs and psychology.
