We're kicking off a series where we'll be thinking hard about design! Whether it's a story, art, website, or product, design is inarguably an important part of the decision making process as you make your thing.
In this first part we walk around some working definitions of design, cite some examples of how design choices are sometimes victims of the capricious nature of fashion, and discuss some cases where a heightened sense of design helped communicate some pretty abstract ideas.
