Good Design... 
Is problem solving
Is making things that people like (versus advertising, which is making people like things - Brian Collins)
Undergoes a process (define problem, gather info, ideation, design, feedback, revision, finalization, implementation)
Isn’t art. (Designing isn’t making whatever you want)
Is both functional and aesthetic (function and form)
Communicates effectively
Is unobtrusive
Is useful to people
Is ethical
Glorifies God
