Design is the pedestal

I have been nominated by my blogger friend Lata Subramanian for the 3 Day Quote Challenge.

My quote for Day 1 is:
Courtesy - Google
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

“Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” – Steve Jobs.
This quote is from the 2003 New York Times article “The Guts of a New Machine.” (November 30, 2003)
A very thoughtful and inspirational quote of Steven Paul Steve Jobs. 
Steve Jobs accomplishments and inspiring quotes have always served to me as a great influence and a stimulation that keeps me charged and working forth towards my goals.
Although not being a Graphic designer or a product designer, I could utterly relate to this quote. Design here, according to me, does not refer to any particular jargon, rather design is a mere prompt, a delightful thought, a deliberate plan that leads one to the preferable output. Design is the pedestal.
You can't build a great building on a weak foundation and you can't execute on a desirable 
dream with a weak plan(design).

Thank you Lata Subramanian for nominating me for the 3 Day Quote Challenge.
