Design is the process of shaping: the development of every-day objects, services, digital applications or visual identities. It could be anything from buildings, medical equipent, games, to furniture, clothing, or fonts and logos; everything mankind uses to shape his world. The result of that process is a design, a model of an existing or new reality. The model always has a shape and function, but also embodies an ambition: developing the world from a human need, according to new insights.
