Steve Jobs on Design

I often quote examples from Steve Job's career as examples of good design, and by design I mean usability and a more holistic sense of knowing everything about a product that is important and getting all those things right.  So I was pleased to find this quote from him via Stephen Fry:

“In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.”
