iF World Design Guide: What is good design?

iF World Design Guide: What is good design?

This question is always open to debate - This is why the website relaunch of the iF should not be seen as any less than an international catalogue for good design. The objective was to conquer this mountain of material and to transform the gigantic data base into a unique source of inspiration for the design world. The solution is something that is mostly unseen: An intelligent back-end tames the material and standardises it for its presentation on the website. With a pared-down intuitive interface, it is easy for users to find their way around the abundance of entries.
