The Importance of Good Design

While browsing my trusty blog reader, I came across this entry on everyone’s favorite blog; Apartment Therapy. The entry is titled Why Is Good Design So Important?. It is a personal approach to why, as humans, do we subconsciously gravitate toward good design. It suggests that the objects that a person loves says a lot about who that person is, not necessarily just what it says about their personal style.

The entry got me thinking about a book I began reading (but was forced to return to the library when I moved a few months ago) called Emotional Design: Why We Love (or Hate) Everyday Things. It is a pretty self explanatory title… Of the portion that I did read, I would suggest this book to anyone who is interested in design psychology that does not mind a good non-fiction (and somewhat reference book-like) read, like I do 🙂

And FYI…I do plan on finishing that book!
