- Everything is designed. Most people have little understanding of the design process, but we all live with its results: a sign on the highway, an explanation of a medical procedure in an emergency room, a diagram on how to build a piece of furniture, a chart that shows us our assets, a ballot, a data-driven decision. Not everyone realizes this. Many people assume that things just emerge in their finished visual form, like Athena springing, fully armed, from Zeus’s forehead. This may explain why design isn’t always as good as it needs to be.
