“Design, for me, is still about solving problems and offering solutions that can be understood and appreciated effortlessly by the users. It involves answering the question of “why?” with honesty and clarity and without meaningless words or details. Good design ultimately is about this clarity of thoughts and how faithfully it is translated into a form that serves a purpose in our lives.”
