Anyone who designs anything (especially software developers) should watch this
I thought this was a brilliant documentary on design. I have been a software designer for decades and appreciated the professionalism and abilities of those interviewed. I must admit that I learned a bit about design as well - some ideas were totally new to me.
I believe someone who does not do design for a living would find it interesting as well. It would help people appreciate why a good design is a good design and understand a little bit more about what the people who do good designs are like.
Watching the film made me think about what good design was and gave me a greater appreciation for things I like. It also gave me some ideas on how to challenge some of the designs I do.
Besides being a good learning film, I just found it enjoyable.
