Design is something beyond words. It’s a broad term. Design surrounds us every single moment no matter if it’s a design of a coffee mug or tooth brush or it is your laptop/ cell phone on which you are reading this article, it is just everywhere. It can be found in the tiniest of places and items but if we talk about web designing, the first thing that comes to mind is graphic designing.
Today, we are going to discuss how design affects our daily life in every aspect with the help of certain examples. Let’s dig in:
1). Difference between good design and bad design?
Well you must be wondering what is good design and bad design, let’s have a look at the characteristics below:
Good design characteristics:
Bad design characteristics:
Design does not always mean pretty. When it comes to interactive design or B2B website design, it is much more than that.
The motive of a good design motive is always to perform, communicate, convert and fulfill a purpose. Ask several questions to your valuable business insights first while evaluating any of the design. No one can give better answers than you.
2). Interior design – How the Open Layout Brought Families Closer Together
Gone are the days when the kitchen area was considered as dangerous kind of thing and was considered as a very separate space from the rest of the home. But now the open layout is a newer concept in the interiors and has almost become standard in newly constructed homes today.
This new technology has bought families close together. As the kitchen and the living space are combined together, they have strengthened and polished the bond in between every member of the family.
3). Web Design – How the Face of the Web Has Reached New Standards
With the evolution of the web in the recent years, earlier we had not much idea about how the design will even look in future. We accepted it as the way it was but with time, now we know it’s easy to create a beautiful website that help effective sales funnel. We are now more discerning consumers, and more informed buyers because of the web and its changing design.
4). Technology – How The Smartphone Designs have put Everything in the Palm of Our Hands
We had to look over to various locations as well as other sources of information such as news, entertainment, information, shopping and so much more before the invention of mobile phones and iPhones.
But after the era, in today’s world, everyone carries a mobile phone. You have all the information with you. The super sleek design and micro tech feature of mobile phones makes it user friendly. Just a swipe and there you go! You could do everything with it.
The story does not end here! The websites and application has adapted to match the tiny screen of your mobile phone.
5). Architecture – How Great Structures Made Us Look to the Sky
Design has made us possible to think that nothing is impossible. All those monuments such as Great Wall of China, the Egyptian Pyramids, The Empire State Building etc are not the merely things of dream now.
It has changed our perception of what we were capable of. It has taught us that sky is even not the limit. It is beyond the moon. These things have led our imagination into some design.
6). How design can improve the everyday chores?
We use a number of design things on a daily basis. Let us understand it with the help of an example.
For example: TV remote control. Many of the remote controls earlier were non-intuitive interface or had poor usability. In addition to it, it was not compatible with every device which led to unsatisfied customers and poor sales.
But now as with the era of new design, many companies have launched designs of TV remote control that are more intuitive and user-friendly. They have found the solution by thinking from the client’s perspective (like a designer). They have made the product much simpler by removing unnecessary buttons.
It results into better customer satisfaction along with good performance/ increase in sales and growth.
It’s a win-win situation for all resulting into customer trust and satisfaction.
Time to sum up:
So, this is how design changes our daily life. It’s a vital part of our life and thus cannot be ignored. Great designs put a great impact on our lives and hence we should focus on getting them right every time we are on it.
