I believe that good design marks the professional. Good design should be a single harmonious cast without shortcomings or significant compromise and the keynote is honesty, technically and aesthetically honest. The attribute of taste is the ability to distinguish between good and bad, good and better, logical and inconsistent, befitting or out of place, pleasing or uninspiring. In short, good design means to recognize the scales and nuances of values and select those necessary for a tasteful result.
