Top Design Philosophy Quotes

Design Philosophy Quotes By John Langdon

Language, philosophy, and science are interwoven into the design of words, which are manipulated to create surprising illusions. — John Langdon

Design Philosophy Quotes By Candice Olson

I simply love classic design when it's reinterpreted. These collections reflect the spirit of this design philosophy; clean pared down lines and forms rooted in tradition yet made to feel new and modern with unexpected or stylized scale, finishes and detailing. This contemporary take on tradition creates a look that's at once current yet timeless, fresh yet familiar ... the essence of both beautiful design and a beautifully designed home. — Candice Olson

Design Philosophy Quotes By Angus J.L. Menuge

How can we assert and test hypotheses if there are no such things as assertions that can be evaluated as true or false? How can we design experiments if there is not such thing as design? How can we explain anything if we do not assert anything and if others cannot understand it? — Angus J.L. Menuge

Design Philosophy Quotes By Amit Ray

In our life there is one side which is finite and another side which is infinite. I want you to think about both the sides and design the best life and stand in their true values. — Amit Ray

Design Philosophy Quotes By Vineet Raj Kapoor

The Game gives you a Purpose. The Real Game is, to Find a Purpose. — Vineet Raj Kapoor

Design Philosophy Quotes By Brian Eno

The trouble begins with a design philosophy that equates 'more options' with 'greater freedom.' — Brian Eno

Design Philosophy Quotes By Renzo Piano

When you design a building, you start from a general philosophy, and you come down, and you start from detail and come up. Only the theoretical architect believes that you can make the concept and then sometime, somebody will come to build it. — Renzo Piano

Design Philosophy Quotes By Soumeet Lanka

You don't sell the product, you sell the philosophy. When you sell a product, you have customers, when you sell a philosophy, you have believers. — Soumeet Lanka

Design Philosophy Quotes By Debasish Mridha

You are the architect of your own future, so design your future with uncompromising sincerity. — Debasish Mridha

Design Philosophy Quotes By Toby Hemenway

Permaculture is not the movement of sustainability and it is not the philosophy behind it; it is the problem-solving approach the movement and the philosophy can use to meet their goals and design a world in which human needs are met while enhancing the health of this miraculous planet that supports us. — Toby Hemenway

Design Philosophy Quotes By Piero Scaruffi

Evolution did not design us to believe only true facts, nor to buy only useful products, nor to say only meaningful sentences — Piero Scaruffi

Design Philosophy Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Be the designer of your own future. — Debasish Mridha

Design Philosophy Quotes By Lorenzo Ghiberti

The sculptor, and the painter also, should be trained in these liberal arts: grammar, geometry, philosophy, medicine, astronomy, perspective, history, anatomy, theory of design, arithmetic. — Lorenzo Ghiberti

Design Philosophy Quotes By Isaac Newton

Our design, not respecting arts, but philosophy, and our subject, not manual, but natural powers, we consider chiefly those things which relate to gravity, levity, elastic force, the resistance of fluids, and the like forces, whether attractive or impulsive; and therefore we offer this work as mathematical principles of philosophy; for all the difficulty of philosophy seems to consist in this from the phenomena of motions to investigate the forces of nature, and then from these forces to demonstrate the other phenomena ... — Isaac Newton

Design Philosophy Quotes By Roger Martin

When it comes to innovation, business has much to learn from design. The philosophy in design shops is, 'try it, prototype it, and improve it'. — Roger Martin

Design Philosophy Quotes By Zack Snyder

You can't teach anyone. You can't tell anyone. That's the thing you have to sit down and experience in order for it to mean anything. You can't intellectualize it. It's like why movies are cool. It's a combination of pictures and design and acting and music can create an experience that is outside of the experience that you can actually have in reality, which gets to my motion picture philosophy. People are like, 'aren't you trying to make the movies as real as you can?' — Zack Snyder

Design Philosophy Quotes By Sean J Halford

In trying to explain life we have reduced it to a series of chemical reactions, whether it be the burning of glucose in mitochondria to create energy, or the folding of proteins to make bile, or pollen, or blood. Zoom out to where we perceive things, the titanic mathematics of it all is silent. We have twisted our thoughts and feelings into all sorts of psychological origami about whether these things are a result of evolution, intelligent design, or creation ex nihilo, and for all we know, our little planet is the only place that holds all of this wonder in a void that is too staggeringly huge to conceive. — Sean J Halford

Design Philosophy Quotes By Nate Berkus

The Things That Matter convincingly lays out Nate Berkus's philosophy that things do matter. Our homes tell our stories, they reflect the places we've been and the people we've loved along the way - and there can be no more beautiful design for living than that. — Nate Berkus

Design Philosophy Quotes By Eric S. Raymond

When you see the right thing, do it - this may look like more work in the short term, but it's the path of least effort in the long run. If you don't know what the right thing is, do the minimum necessary to get the job done, at least until you figure out what the right thing is. To do the Unix philosophy right, you have to be loyal to excellence. You have to believe that software design is a craft worth all the intelligence, creativity, and passion you can muster. Otherwise you won't look past the easy, stereotyped ways of approaching design and implementation; you'll rush into coding when you should be thinking. You'll carelessly complicate when you should be relentlessly simplifying - and then you'll wonder why your code bloats and debugging is so hard. — Eric S. Raymond

Design Philosophy Quotes By Rafael Vinoly

Architects feel empowered to give opinions about politics and sociology and philosophy without knowing much about it. Kind of in the same way that they think they can design furniture or fashion or utensils for dining. — Rafael Vinoly

Design Philosophy Quotes By Randolph M. Nesse

Even our behavior and emotions seem to have been shaped by a prankster. Why do we crave the very foods that are bad for us but have less desire for pure grains and vegetables? Why do we keep eating when we know we are too fat? And why is our willpower so weak in its attempts to restrain our desires? Why are male and female sexual responses so uncoordinated, instead of being shaped for maximum mutual satisfaction? Why are so many of us constantly anxious, spending our lives, as Mark Twain said, "suffering from tragedies that never occur"? Finally, why do we find happiness so elusive, with the achievement of each long-pursued goal yielding not contentment, but only a new desire for something still less attainable? The design of our bodies is simultaneously extraordinarily precise and unbelievably slipshod. It is as if the best engineers in the universe took every seventh day off and turned the work over to bumbling amateurs. — Randolph M. Nesse

Design Philosophy Quotes By Tadao Ando

Italy is full of historical buildings. And Europe holds a great history of philosophy from Greece until today. I read all those books and see these buildings, and I think of where I stand when I design my architecture. — Tadao Ando

Design Philosophy Quotes By Robert T. Pennock

Intelligent design theorists have learned a few lessons from the failures of their predecessors and have devised a more sophisticated strategy to compete head on with evolution. One of the main things they [intelligent design creationists] have learned is what not to say.
A major element of their strategy is to advance a form of creation that not only omits any explicit mention of Genesis but is also usually vague, if not mute, about any of the specific claims about the nature of Creation, the separate ancestry of humans and apes, the explanation of the earth's geology by catastrophic global flood, or the age of the earth - items that readily identified young-earth creationism as a thinly disguised biblical literalism. — Robert T. Pennock

Design Philosophy Quotes By Michael J. Behe

Is the conclusion that the universe was designed - and that the design extends deeply into life - science, philosophy, religion, or what? In a sense it hardly matters. By far the most important question is not what category we place it in, but whether a conclusion is true. A true philosophical or religious conclusion is no less true than a true scientific one. Although universities might divide their faculty and courses into academic categories, reality is not obliged to respect such boundaries. — Michael J. Behe

Design Philosophy Quotes By Michael Foley

It is not possible to be original by trying to be original - those who attempt this in the arts will be merely avant-garde. Originality is the product of an impulse to intense and overwhelming that it bursts the conventions and produces something new - again more by accident than design. — Michael Foley

Design Philosophy Quotes By Jonathan Swift

That the universe was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms, I will no more believe than that the accidental jumbling of the alphabet would fall into a most ingenious treatise of philosophy. — Jonathan Swift

Design Philosophy Quotes By Toby Hemenway

I'm going to argue here that the most accurate and least muddled way to think of permaculture is as a design approach, and that we are often misdirected by the fact that it fits into a larger philosophy and movement which it supports. But it is not that philosophy or movement. It is a design approach for realizing a new paradigm. — Toby Hemenway

Design Philosophy Quotes By Rupert Dreyfus

We think of our species as swinging on the pinnacle of evolution, but this definitely isn't the final design. If our bodies don't evolve much further, our minds will. It's the only way our species can save itself. An evolution of human consciousness is only a matter of time. And that's when we will finally discover the good life, hand in hand. Meanwhile we just have to tough it out and make the most of things. — Rupert Dreyfus

Design Philosophy Quotes By Benjamin Percy

If he sees his fellow humans as anything more than complicated animals. Not so different from a deer or a wolf, knitted together with the same sinew but in another design. — Benjamin Percy

Design Philosophy Quotes By Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Science is a philosophy of discovery. Intelligent design is a philosophy of ignorance. — Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Design Philosophy Quotes By Ray Davies

It's never too late to get a new design, and if you wanna compete you gotta visualize. — Ray Davies

Design Philosophy Quotes By Paul Greene

That everything in nature has "the appearance" of design is not exactly evidence against design. According to Dawkins, though, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it is almost certainly something else. — Paul Greene

Design Philosophy Quotes By E. F. L. Wood, 1st Earl Of Halifax

A man that steps aside from the world and has leisure to observe it without interest and design, thinks all mankind as mad as they think him. — E. F. L. Wood, 1st Earl Of Halifax

Design Philosophy Quotes By Novalis

Only the most perfect human being can design the most perfect philosophy. — Novalis

Design Philosophy Quotes By Tom Barker

Responsive design is not a flawed methodology; it is only when it is misused and treated as an add-on instead of an overarching philosophy — Tom Barker

Design Philosophy Quotes By Gustave Flaubert

The rage for wanting to conclude is one of the most deadly and most fruitless manias to befall humanity. Each religion and each philosophy has pretended to have God to itself, to measure the infinite, and to know the recipe for happiness. What arrogance and what nonsense! I see, to the contrary, that the greatest geniuses and the greatest works have never concluded. — Gustave Flaubert

Design Philosophy Quotes By Arthur Koestler

All "if" statements about the past are as dubious as prophecies of the future are. It seems fairly plausible that if Alexander or Ghengis Khan had never been born, some other individual would have filled his place and executed the design of the Hellenic or Mongolic expansion; but the Alexanders of philosophy and religion, of science and art, seem less expendable; their impact seems less determined by economic challenges and social pressures; and they seem to have a much wider range of possibilities to influence the direction, shape and texture of civilizations. — Arthur Koestler

Design Philosophy Quotes By Tom Turner

Having lasted for 4,000 years, the use of nature's materials to express ideas about nature may be expected to continue. The best garden designs are produced with an awareness of the art, science, history, geography, philosophy, social habits and construction techniques of their period. — Tom Turner

Design Philosophy Quotes By Kathy Ireland

The only thing Martha and I have in common is that we both used to model. Martha Stewart is extremely talented. Her designs are picture perfect. Our philosophy is life is messy, and rather than being afraid of those messes we design products that work the way we live. — Kathy Ireland

Design Philosophy Quotes By Michael Oakeshott

When Mr. Lippmann says that the founders of our free institutions were adherents of the philosophy of natural law, and that 'the free political institutions of the Western world were conceived and established' by men who held certain abstract beliefs, he speaks with the shortened perspective of an American way of thinking in which a manner of conducting affairs is inconceivable without an architect and without a premeditated 'dedication to a proposition.' But the fact is that nobody ever 'founded these institutions.' They are the product of innumerable human choices, over long stretches of time, but not of any human design. — Michael Oakeshott

Design Philosophy Quotes By Vitruvius

The ideal architect should be a man of letters, a skillful draftsman, a mathematician, familiar with historical studies, a diligent student of philosophy, acquainted with music, not ignorant of medicine, learned in the responses of jurisconsults, familiar with astronomy and astronomical calculations. — Vitruvius

Design Philosophy Quotes By G-Eazy

I think my style revolves around the philosophy that less is more, that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. That goes for my taste in design and in clothes, and even affects the way I approach music. I'm all about keeping things simple, and minimal, but being able to convey something powerful through that approach. — G-Eazy

Design Philosophy Quotes By Phillip E. Johnson

This [the intelligent design movement] isn't really, and never has been, a debate about science, it's about religion and philosophy. — Phillip E. Johnson

Design Philosophy Quotes By Douglas Crockford

We see a lot of feature-driven product design in which the cost of features is not properly accounted. Features can have a negative value to customers because they make the products more difficult to understand and use. We are finding that people like products that just work. It turns out that designs that just work are much harder to produce that designs that assemble long lists of features. — Douglas Crockford

Design Philosophy Quotes By Issey Miyake

Design is not for philosophy it's for life. — Issey Miyake

Design Philosophy Quotes By Yukihiro Matsumoto

Actually, I didn't make the claim that Ruby follows the principle of least surprise. Someone felt the design of Ruby follows that philosophy, so they started saying that. I didn't bring that up, actually. — Yukihiro Matsumoto

Design Philosophy Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Remember, no one can design your life, only you can do that. — Debasish Mridha

Design Philosophy Quotes By Erik Adigard

Design is in everything we make, but it's also between those things. It's a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda, and philosophy. — Erik Adigard
