Quotes on Design

"In most people's vocabularies, design means veneer. It's interior decorating. It's the fabric of the curtains of the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service."  

     Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

     Thomas Edison (1847-1931)

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

    Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
