Aesthetics, beauty, or attractiveness can’t be defined by itself. But I recognize it when I see it.
“Design does not equal making things pretty, but a significant number of people seem to think it does. They think aesthetics are design and somehow think all the other things designers do just happen on their own.”
(Steven Bradley ~ Vanseo design)
Pigs and lipsticks. Never thought pink was nice on an animal, except flamingos.
“Beauty is one of the oldest and most powerful concepts in human history—inspiring artists and lighting up cultural movements, philosophical debates, and, in modern times, curious scientific interest. Beauty is a desirable feature of the products we buy, with the power to shape consumer choices and preferences.”
