Recently, I watched a documentary titled “Objectified” which featured some of the most prominent designers and engineers of our time. If you’re in this field, or just interested in it, I highly recommend watching the entire documentary. Every featured designer/engineer had something important to say but the feature that I found particularly inspiring came from Jonathan Ives (Vice President of Design for Apple Computers).
Design and engineering is communication. It’s art. Every boss, fillet, flat surface, and change thereof is propagated to the user experience. Whether the user knows it or not, your design affects their feeling of the product. In turn, you affect peoples emotions on a mass level.
Take pride in your work. You make a difference. People listen to your designs.
