Look at houses, workplaces, stores and gyms. Everything is designed. So much creative thought goes into our environments. From Gucci to Apple to Target, the way objects function and look is of critical importance in the 21st century. Good design has become good business. It differentiates companies. Separates them from the competition. Gives them an edge. Workers have job security, because creative capacity cannot be easily copied or outsourced to other countries. How do we develop our design sensibilities in the New Year? Think about visiting a design museum online to see examples of beautiful design. Collections can be accessed digitally. Plenty of inspiration for 2012. Start developing your eye for design today.
