Dieter Rams Principles

Can we software developers learn from an industrial designer? Sounds impossible, right? But I believe that the consciousness of everything creative can be moulded around Dieter Rams principles.

  1. Good design is innovative.

  2. Good design makes a product useful.

  3. Good design is aesthetic.

  4. Good design makes a product easy to understand.

  5. Good design is unobtrusive.

  6. Good design is honest.

  7. Good design is long lasting.

  8. Good design is thorough.

  9. Good design is environmentally friendly.

  10. Good design is as little design as possible.

And I can't stop wondering that Zen of Python resonates the same ideas.
