Imagine walking down an aisle with a bunch of books facing you left and right. Before you consider a book to read, you first have to look at the cover before deciding to pick it up. You basically have a title and an image to work with. No matter how good it is on the inside, you first have to interpret the cover in some way. This is how I view design. To me, it’s the doorway someone faces, before deciding to walk through and explore what’s inside. In a digital scenario, it’s still a step-by-step process. The mind is still deciding on what to think and what action to take. Design is explaining something to you visually, so that you can understand and make a decision.
