courage in design

Thanks, Kym

I was impressed with a chapter in Daniel Pink's book "A Whole New Mind" on the importance of design, the competition to get into good design classes and the emergence of the subject as a whole.

I suspect that good design and good editing take a certain courage and ability to stand pressure and handle risk.  If you decide to add cinnamon to a dish or use a certain color in room, it takes a little courage to go ahead and do that without adding every other spice or color in an undisciplined attempt to cover all bases.

Kym has left a new comment on your post "too much of a good thing":

Google's main page is a popular example in design courses, and rightfully so. Besides the pleasing aesthetic, it has accessibility and transportability advantages.
