Instead of sitting at your computer, and looking at books, go to a drycleaner, and sit there. The way to get an interesting idea is to go to the source. Stay there until you have thought of something interesting about drycleaning. Then, listen to that idea and it will design itself.
—  Bob Gill on how to have a good idea
Design is a way of organizing something. You Cannot hold design in your hand. It is not a thing. It is a process. A system. A way of thinking. There’s no such thing as “good design” or “bad design”. The design is good if it does what you want it to do. It’s bad if it doesn’t. In order to have a design, you need something to organize.

That’s the fun of being a creative person – it’s to have an opinion.

In this fantastic Design Matters interview, legendary graphic designer Bob Gill dishes on everything from working with The Beatles to why there is no such thing as a bad client – “only bad designers” – to how creating things that are beautiful but don’t have a point of view is the ultimate betrayal of the creative profession.

When you get a job – say an ad for a drycleaner – many images come to mind, we all have preconceptions. My suggestion is to forget every image that comes to mind, forget everything you know about drycleaning. Instead of sitting at your computer, and looking at books, go to a drycleaner, and sit there. The way to get an interesting idea is to go to the source. Stay there until you have thought of something interesting about drycleaning. Then, listen to that idea and it will design itself.
