Design must be honest, desirable and forward thinking. Honest, in the way that its purpose is its definition. Desirable, in its aesthetics, is pleasant and evokes thought, presenting its intention just partly but enough to stimulate interest from users. Forward thinking in providing a solution for the present need while also establishing a direction to its future use or state. Design is always unselfish.
