well, the only real thing that should drive designers, developers and engineers are REAL excisting customer needs.

 

I think that especially the electronics branche is not driven by needs but by commerce and marketing. Too bad.

how about more tv programmes related to industrial design on discovery channel for example. maybe the people need to know more about the design field. make them more design aware to drive the industry ..just a quick thought

I think industry should be led by new ideas, strong concepts, open minds and above all, compromise...

 

 

We have had too much of the good ol' marketing. The word Design means nothing today thanks to that marketing guys. Everything has a cool design, but as empty as a bucket of nothing. We have to get rid of form and start paying attention to concepts, function and originality.

 

That was my 2 cents ;)
