Design – Wikipedia

Drafting of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or of a system; process of creation; act of creativity and innovation

A design is a plan or specification for the construction of an object or system or for the implementation of an activity or process, or the result of that plan or specification in the form of a prototype, product or process. The verb to design expresses the process of developing a design. In some cases, the direct construction of an object without an explicit prior plan (such as in craftwork, some engineering, coding, and graphic design) may also be considered to be a design activity. The design usually has to satisfy certain goals and constraints, may take into account aesthetic, functional, economic, or socio-political considerations, and is expected to interact with a certain environment. Major examples of designs include architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit

Once the pollen has been cleared, it’s a great time to complete a few projects around the home. If you don’t even know where to start, here are a few little projects that you can complete in a few hours.


1) Cull through the books and magazines. You can take this one shelf at a time, and at the same time, get some much-needed dusting done as you empty each shelf.

If you’ve been hoarding magazines, there are plenty of art teachers out there who would would love to have them for class.

Seriously, 20 years of looking at badly designed websites takes its toll, but like John Wick, I’m back. Bad websites: Prepare to get shot in the face a la John Wick. Click picture for my feelings on the matter.
