Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

Cannes Lions gets a new section for design

January 22, 2008, 2:00 AM

One of the most (still) respected european advertising festivals gets a new section: design. Packaging Design, Brand Identity and also Environmental Design to be more precise.

Wonder if they’ll find a way to subscribe some ghosts for this section as well :)) Nothing’s impossible, right? Nevertheless, it’s still a good thing that design gets a little more attention and maybe it’ll become a little bit more popular (compared to the “coolness” of advertising – everybody wants to make comercials, few want to design brand guidelines). And *just* maybe design will become a bit better known in Romania as well. It’s frustrating to say you’re a designer and have to explain that no, you’re not a fashion designer but something more serious and useful.
