Design dictionary

[ Design ]

Design originally derived from latin designare (to mark, to draw, to indicate).


Design is a practice that entails conceiving, creating, inventing, or improving products, services, or experiences. Ideally, design should benefit the most significant number of people. During the design phases of formalization, representation, scripting, prototyping, and experimentation, designers leverage their intuition and reason. Design can ultimately reveal new ways of cohabiting, communicating, working, or living.
