INFINITE LOOP OF QUESTIONS
When designing, how do you know if your design has reached its potential? Could there perhaps be another better idea or iteration of your design that would take it to that next level? Or has your design reached its highest poetic qualities that yield amazing functional, aesthetic, and meaningful results?
The latter are all very interesting questions – particularly since your final design result is really a manifestation of the creative journey that you travelled since becoming aware of the particular design challenge for which you were solving. In other words, how do you know if your design solution is really the best solution for a given design challenge? After all, what if you took a wrong turn during the design process? Were all of your design decisions along the way the correct decisions? And if not, how costly will the mistakes be for the resulting design and its users?
