Compromised Design

Tuesday, January 02, 2007

Ah. What a great new year it is indeed. Hope you had a great celebration, I certainly did.

Compromise is the refuge of the inept and weak–minded. It can be described in sugarcoated terms and even associated with lofty ideals for the purpose of misdirection, but compromise is nothing less than failure.

One of a designer’s responsibilities is to speak truth to power. The timid or insecure need not apply.

A designer unwilling to do so, and do so as a matter of course, should choose another profession. Speaking truth to power is not enough, though. Merely making strong, logical arguments may not do the trick. So it is required that we be adept at making convincing arguments that result in the proper accord.

Another great one by Andy Rutledge »
