Welcome to Design/Ontwerp

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works" - Steve Jobs

Design is everywhere and shapes the world around us. Everything in the man-made world, has been designed, from the homes we live in and the clothes we wear, to the modes of transport we use. Design is a creative solving process that results in new environments, systems, services and products, which may be unique or intended for mass-production, or which may be constructed by hand or produced by mechanical and/or electronic means. Design adds value to life by creating products that have a purpose, that are functional and that have aesthetic value. Design products can shape the social, cultural and physical environment to the benefit of the nation.

Design is what links creativity and innovation. It shapes idead to become practical and attractive propositions for users and customers. Design can be described as creativity deployed to a specifiic end.
