"Good design is in all the things you notice. Great design is in all the things you don’t" - WIM HOVENS

"Designer" is a broad term which describes very few specialized individuals. Designers are problem solvers and like what Wim Hovens says, their work may or may not be noticed by the general population. The people behind "Great Designs" are a revered few.

Industry examples of companies affected by Design

  • Design Leaders like Apple Inc, Google, Fischer Price, Ferrari, Facebook etc. are global leaders in their own right because of a strong focus on Design
  • Design Transformers like Mahindra, Samsung etc. have used "Great Design" concepts to transform public perception of their products and services
  • Design Thinkers from Citrix, Forbes, Infosys etc. have inculcated Design Thought Process in Techies, Engineers and MBA's across all organization levels
  • Companies like Nokia, Yahoo, Orkut etc. have lost their competitive edge because they were unable to keep pace with the design innovation

Design in short is a highly effective thought process directed towards problem solving. In the recent past, the emphasis on design is making or breaking the fortunes of companies.
