Bill Buxton Quotes

Author Quote
Bill Buxton “People on a design team must be as happy to be wrong as right. If their ideas hold up under strong (but fair) criticism, then great, they can proceed with confidence. If their ideas are rejected with good rationale, then they have learned something. A healthy team is made up of people who have the attitude that it is better to learn something new than to be right.”

Bill Buxton “Ultimately, we are deluding ourselves if we think that the products that we design are the ‘things’ that we sell, rather than the individual, social and cultural experience that they engender, and the value and impact that they have. Design that ignores this is not worthy of the name.”

Bill Buxton “The experience is about how we get there, not the landing place.”

Bill Buxton “We may think that bad design is the ‘enemy’ and that our holy grail is to stomp it out. But displacing poor design should be relatively easy for a trained professional. No, the real enemy is great design. Why? Because great design takes hold, gets traction, and takes on its own inertia–which makes it hard to replace. And replace it we must: Everything reaches its past-due date. Design is no different.”
