Design is…

How does one define design? Sure you could look in a dictionary and find something like “an outline, sketch, or plan, as of the form and structure of a work of art, an edifice, or a machine to be executed or constructed.” But, does anyone really think of design that way?

Most of us think of design in more simpler terms like “Design is just colors and shapes,” and “Design is just using the swatches palette in Photoshop.”

On September 13th, 2006, designer Jon Hicks created a wallpaper and posted it on his site. It said “Design is just making things line up.” It inspired other designers to create wallpapers that said what design meant to them. Eventually, someone decided to make a Flickr pool collecting lots of “Design is” wallpapers.

And now, I have wallpapers to add to the collection and they are below. I will provide different sizes later.

Design is Balance Design is Semantic
