Steve Jobs on design in 1996

Ironic that this quote was found on a Microsoft design blog, making it even more significant, perhaps…


“To design something really well you have to get it. You have to really grok what it’s all about. It takes a passionate commitment to thoroughly understand something — chew it up, not just quickly swallow it .. .. A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. They don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions, without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better designs we will have.”

Steve Jobs, Wired (March, 1996)
