Bad Design = Failed (or Missing) Design Process

A note written on May 20th: Bad design = that the design process has failed [or is missing]; the thing in question [the designed entity] doesn’t work as good as one would expect … Not that it’s ugly. But some design is all aesthetics, and [then] bad design = ugly.

(To most people, I guess, design is about things that look designed, or which were designed by a well-known designer, in which case it’s just an extension of the Brand.)

The above was posted to my personal weblog on June 23, 2005. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
