Leave this world a little better than you found it.— Robert Baden-Powell
Lavish Creative Design quotations
There is no design without discipline. There is no discipline without intelligence.
The letters don't get their true delight, when done in haste & discomfort, nor merely done with diligence & pain, but first when they are created with love and passion.
You can do a good ad without good typography, but you can't do a great ad without good typography.
If you can design one thing, you can design everything.
Interesting things happen when the creative impulse is cultivated with curiosity, freedom and intensity.
Creative people have to believe in the value of their work.
If you don’t have any belief then you can’t give anything—designing is an act of giving, and a belief in the value of the work fuels the desire to express something. It’s important to know what your values are and to take care of them.
To create, one must first question everything.
Failure is built into creativity... the creative act involves this element of 'newness' and 'experimentalism,' then one must expect and accept the possibility of failure.
The life of a designer is a life of fight: fight against the ugliness.
A designer is a planner with an aesthetic sense.
It would seem unlikely that a manufacturer of short-lived paperboard boxes could make the slightest cultural impact upon his time. But the facts show that if even the humblest product is designed, manufactured, and distributed with a sense of human values and with a taste for quality, the world will recognize the presence of a creative force.
The designer's role in the development, application and protection of the trademark may be described as pre-creative, creative and post-creative.
Good design is thorough, down to the last detail.
Simplicity, carried to an an extreme, becomes elegance.
I don’t like the collusion between high fashion design and high street.
You have to know where you stand. I belong to luxury fashion. That’s what I’ve always felt and embraced. I like the best quality, the best fabrics and the most creative field in fashion. I will stay consistent. I belong to this world.
If you want people to perform better, you reward them, right? Bonuses, commissions, their own reality show. Incentivize them. [...] But that's not happening here. You've got an incentive designed to sharpen thinking and accelerate creativity, and it does just the opposite. It dulls thinking and blocks creativity.
We live in a society that penalizes highly creative individuals for their non-conformist autonomy. This makes the teaching of problem solving in design both discouraging and difficult. A...student (has) massive blocks against new ways of thinking, engendered by some 16 years of mis-education.
An enterprise's most vital assets lie in its design and other creative capabilities.
An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.
Great design is a multi-layered relationship between human life and its environment.
Technical skill is mastery of complexity, while creativity is mastery of simplicity.
Design is a way of life, a point of view.
It involves the whole complex of visual communications: talent, creative ability, manual skill, and technical knowledge. Aesthetics and economics, technology and psychology are intrinsically related to the process.
What's wrong with creative block? Might it not just be that periods--even extended ones--of productive hiatus are essential mechanisms of gestation designed to help us attain higher standards in our pursuit of creative excellence?
Become a creative thinking detective! Ask probing questions.
There is no such thing as a wasted question.
Good design is partially creativity and innovation, but primarily knowledge and awareness.
It's all about one thing: creative problem-solving to get the story out.
The best programmers are not marginally better than merely good ones.
They are an order-of-magnitude better, measured by whatever standard: conceptual creativity, speed, ingenuity of design, or problem-solving ability.
You can't buy something which does not exist.
In a way, let's make things exist and then judge later. Don't cancel the process of creativity too early; let it flow.
As soon as you accept the accidental effects, they are no longer accidents.
They are necessity the part of yourself that you could not expect or design beforehand. Thus the realm of your creativity grows wider.
A culture that just views a pig as a pile of protoplasmic inanimate structure, and can be manipulated by whatever creative design humans can foist upon that critter, will probably view individuals within its community and other cultures in the community of nations, with the same type of disdain and disrespect and controlling-type mentality.
Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination.
Design is a solution to a problem. Art is a question to a problem.
Artists can have greater access to reality;
they can see patterns and details and connections that other people, distracted by the blur of life, might miss. Just sharing that truth can be a very powerful thing.
It is not enough to have a talented designer;
the management must be inspired too. The creative process is very disorganised; the production process has to be very rational.
