    I'm sure I agreed with the general ideas presented here but something about the generalised sweeping statements didn't uite wash with me and I left the book in another continent so now can't even go back and look at the details of why I'd probably still pick it up again when I next go to my parents' house though Oh and of the people referenced designers writers thinkers et al only two were female and I believe one was a statue and the other was a mythological character or something along those lines so yeah

    Light weight reading

    This book contains theories and philosophies that should guide everyone through whatever path they choose Every sentence is necessary and makes you feel something Beauty really is key to everything and Moore not only uses relatable examples all throughout but he also provides resources in the end for us to dig further It is clear he practices what he preaches This is the kind of book you would revisit that twice for a creativity boost or a life lesson reminder

    Nothing special motivational book that shows that design and beauty is everywhere In Coca Cola or whatever it will be called company that is creating a product

    This book provides the reader with a multitude of references from a magnitude of practices and businesses in which beauty is the objective or the result Even though I managed to select some interesting uotes that can help develop my personal practice I found the texts somewhat subjective and one dimensional Do Design is structured in small texts ranging from 1 to 3 pages each citing these instances where beauty makes itself central However in many of these chapters the topics were discussed rather superficially resulting in a sort of unfinished thought process The rhythm of the reading was not what I first expected and these fast essays made it difficult to fixate my attention Many of the mentioned examples seemed very interesting yet I found them uite briefly elaborated I am sure the author's intention was to give an overview of the importance of beauty and beautiful things in feeding the human soul but the short texts couldn't capture a lot about beauty is or means in today's world I found that the reasonings repeatedly insisted in the ideas of truth love and soul sometimes with an almost spiritual connotation when beauty encompasses much than that being it philosophically or historicallyThere were interesting self references along the texts but again I found them fairly impractical since I would think the author read so much about each subject and decided to excessively summarise the knowledge The Appendices are far detailed and that brought a in depth construction that in my view lacks in the chapters beforeSome interesting reflections I gathered from the text1 The limits of language are the limits of our world We need words to explain things but could the senses explain much without language2 We draw our most potent creativity from deep wells No creative work is obviously coming from the surface they are generally linked to deeper substances3 Work comes from a place of stillness where one's focus is total on the action in hand The inner stillness is important for a creative work to begin to exist We need this silence in order to create the music4 There are no rules only the ones you make The constraints we create to ourselves can sometimes result in lost opportunities5 Every day is the opportunity for the new as yesterday is now gone We can only act upon the time that lies in front of us6 Investing in loving what you do always costs time It is not only about talent or passion but about devotedness to what we want7 If we want to thrive on this planet we must see the world as an interconnected whole How does my action affect another person or environment Every action causes a reaction and we must always think that things on planet Earth don't happen in a hermetic space

    Design is everywhere There’s design in the planning of our cities in the way our institutions are organized in the architecture of our living spaces and in every object we use just taken for granted There’s even design in how we structure our own livesDesign emanates from creative imagination Moore says adding that take novelist William Gibson who coined the word cyberspace back in the 1980s He’s credited with formulating a vision of virtual reality and hyper connection long before the internet became ubiuitous Thus science fiction lays cultural foundation of creative design The author emphasizes there is nothing bad to learn from others and surrender to inspiration from other successful people Take inspiration from the bestseller novelist Mary Wesley She didn’t publish a book until she was 70 years old but still managed to become one of Britain’s most successful novelists writing ten best sellers in the last two decades of her life She would never have succeeded had she believed it was not possible to begin a new career at her age Thus every thing is possible and turn it possible with your iron will It should be guiding philosophy for human to create and spread beauty in the world through design either producing products or something other tangibles That means dedicating yourself to your work with the spirit of a craftsman and designing objects with the users’ experience in mind You can improve the creative process by practicing techniues that help you to be susceptible to inspiration and by learning to express your vision for a product’s future You can also improve the design of your businesses by learning from other successful businesses by promoting openness and collaboration in the workplace Besides cultivate your skill of 'seeing the wider picture'

    “It should be our guiding philosophy to create and spread beauty in the world That means dedicating ourselves to our work with the spirit of a craftsman and designing objects with the users’ experience in mind We can improve the creative process by practicing techniues that help us to be susceptible to inspiration and by learning to express our vision for a product’s future We can also improve the design of our businesses by learning from other successful businesses by promoting openness and collaboration in the workplace and by always seeking to see the bigger pictureActionable advice Make sure you always have an ideas notebook on youInspiration often comes at awkward times and it can vanish just as promptly It can be immensely useful to carry an ideas notebook around with you so you can jot down ideas and doodles when you’re on the go So think about purchasing a pretty little notebook and a pen for yourself preferably something that’ll slip easily into your pocket or purse”

    It's a book that contemplates the beauty and design from a philosophical perspective The book is divided into short chapters and has thoughts from all the different craftsmen be it a writer photographer typographer or even a business owner and it has a section in the middle where the author shares his suggestions on how you can approach to create beauty in your life I liked the views about being a craftsmen and the philosophical take on it I'd definitely own a physical copy of this book and put it on my desk to uickly revisit the chapters periodically It's a really short book Don't overthink Stop reading reviews Read it
