No design is an island

Consumed => “Designing Life-Changing Solutions” by Giorgio Baresi on Frog Design.

http://designmind.frogdesign.com/blog/designing-life-changing-solutions2.html

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

Good stuff. Thanks Giorgio.

Two thoughts:

1) What I think is interesting is that while Nike+ (for example) is “designing life changing solutions” so is Pepsi, Coke, McDonalds, etc. There isn’t just context, there’s competition (or sorts)  in the design ecosystem. That ecosystem is more commonly known as real life. Dare I say, no design is an island. ;)

2) Given your post / article, I’d like to recommend you check out the book “Trillions” by Peter Lucas, Joe Ballay and Mickey McManus (of MAYA Design).
