Quote of the week

“Designers will have less control over the ‘look’ but more of a role in shaping the ‘feel.’ This is a big change—and a big opportunity. The task of designing will be more layered, more multidimensional, more theatrical. We will direct more than design. We will have to think more—about cause and effect, about here and there, about now and later. We will have to understand more—about space and time, about sound and motion, and about languages and cultures other than our own.”
