The gays like ‘Project Runway’ because it’s a fashion, and the gays are into fashion and into design. It’s a creative industry, and most of the gays are pretty creative, in general. That’s just like the culture. We’re not all into politics necessarily. We’re more into the creative environment. I also think Heidi is a big draw. The boys love Heidi and think she’s so fabulous. I just think it’s a glitzy, fun show, and there are also always lots of gay boys on it, and, you know, that’s fun. – Christian Siriano

The industry’s changed so much that you can’t just design something, put on a great show, and say, ‘Okay, my job is done.’ – Alexander Wang

I’ve never mentioned this, but when I was at Parsons teaching, the other design disciplines, they don’t like fashion design. They see it as very nineteenth-century. – Tim Gunn

With fashion, you really need to understand the aspects of construction. Not just design on an iPad. – Tim Gunn

Although my art work was heavily informed by my design work on a formal and visual level, as regards meaning and content the two practices parted ways. – Barbara Kruger

When I was very, very young, seven years old, I heard there was school where you could go to learn to draw. That was my absolute driven passion, to become an artist or a painter. So the romantic realist in me, I studied to be a graphic design artist and an art teacher. – David Coverdale

I had a faux-hawk for a while and I used to buzz the sides and design it. It was really bad. – Joe Jonas

I have a secret thought from some things I have observed, that God may perhaps design you for some singular service in the world. – David Brainerd

In regards to being a fashion aficionado, there’s a certain amount of taking yourself seriously in the professional world. The self-effacing person can’t completely go down the serious road. But I design, and love when things are beautiful. – St. Vincent

So that ideas of sort of relaxed symmetry have been something for years that I have been concerned with because I think that symmetry is a neutral shape as opposed to a form of design. – Robert Rauschenberg

But active programming consists of the design of new programs, rather than contemplation of old programs. – Niklaus Wirth

Clearly, programming courses should teach methods of design and construction, and the selected examples should be such that a gradual development can be nicely demonstrated. – Niklaus Wirth

I have been wildly enthused about gaming since I was younger, and a career path I chose not to go down but did really consider was getting into programming and game design. – Trent Reznor

I write the way you might arrange flowers. Not every try works, but each one launches another. Every constraint, even dullness, frees up a new design. – Richard Powers

There are two kinds of designers: ones who are very happy locked in their office surrounded by their coterie. The last thing they need to do is to go to a trunk show they’d go running for the hills. I not only enjoy it, I think, how do you design things that are applicable to life – unless you live it? – Michael Kors

People kind of tend to mystify design and architecture by suggesting you need to train. – Marc Newson

Well, I never studied design and I went to art school to study art, you know, sculpture and things like that, and ended up making things like sculpture and started making chairs and jewelry together and that’s how I started. – Marc Newson

Design schools are good, I guess, sometimes I visit schools, but they are very very limiting. – Marc Newson

So if I design it and then go away, it’s still living somewhere and it still exists by itself without me. – Marc Newson

So if I want to buy a light in a shop and I don’t find a light that I like, I think to myself what would I like? What would I like to buy? Then I started to imagine and design it for myself a lot of the time. – Marc Newson

I think it is really important to have a sense of business. As a designer you can get so wrapped up in the design and fashion side that you forget the business side. – Tommy Hilfiger

Websites are kind of useless. There’s so much great web content and design out there, but the ways in which they are being experienced are not being maximized. – Dhani Harrison

If you were the first person ever to design an application for the iPhone and you patented it, you would be very, very better off than we are right now, you know? But you’ve got to be the first one to do it. So I figured that Led Zeppelin or the Stones were going to do it unless we just got on to it. So I got cracking with the guys from Apple. – Dhani Harrison

After working with clothes for so long, it seemed right to design them. – L’Wren Scott

The reward is that you can actually create a world separate from reality with a story, actors, music, and camera design. When it works it can entertain, move people and teach us all. – Colleen Atwood

Ultimately we may still ask, why can’t humans design a perfect society? – Robert Shea

To nourish children and raise them against odds is in any time, any place, is more valuable than to fix bolts in cars or design nuclear weapons. – Marilyn French

And then, build a bustling wonderful city of the 21st century, with a restoration of a spectacular skyline, which Manhattan, of course, needs. So, that is really the design as a whole. – Daniel Libeskind

For me, if I can design beautiful things that have the price be lower, I am thrilled. – Tory Burch

You can design a mortgage system that is different without a Fannie and Freddie, but there are principles you have to have, to have a good system. – Jamie Dimon

Traditional horizontal search engines cannot always identify the target audience, niche or vertical industry of a page or site.

Even as a young boy, my passion was to design, and I have been very lucky to be able to do what I have loved all my life. There can be few greater gifts than that. – Valentino Garavani

I would love to be an imagineer! – Roman Coppola

I do love DVD and I’ve always taken them seriously. You know, on the Austin things, we really put a ton of work into them because there’s so much design involved. And in this one, we thought a lot about it and what could go in. – Jay Roach

My biggest role as director on the film is keeping a sense of the overview – how to cast the movie and shoot it in such a way that it will cut together. And how to design the style and tone. – Jay Roach

Through no divine design or cosmic plan, we have inherited the mantle of life’s caretaker on the earth, the only home we have ever known. – Michael Shermer

No architect troubled to design houses that suited people who were to live in them, because that would have meant building a whole range of different houses. It was far cheaper and, above all, timesaving to make them identical. – Michael Ende

I’ve generally got a good eye for design and proportion. – Bruce Oldfield

The demise of Google Reader, if logical, is a reminder of how far we’ve come from the cuddly old ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ Google days, in which there was a foreseeably-astonishing delight in the way Google’s evolving design tricks anticipated what users would like. – James Fallows

When nearly a third of our high school students do not graduate on time with their peers, we have work to do. We must design our middle and high schools so that no student gets lost in the crowd and disconnected from his or her own potential. – Christine Gregoire

Sometimes, you start with the drawing and then the gag comes to you in the middle of it. That is when you start working on the solution of the gag, which is composition, placing, equilibrium, and character design. – Sergio Aragones

In two days, it’s hard to to get the quality you would normally want for a design project. – Douglas Wilson

I look at each episode in two ways – from a design standpoint and from an entertainment standpoint – this is TV, after all. We usually succeed on at least one of the levels. – Douglas Wilson

Throughout the country, I see the same design problems and solutions over and over. – Douglas Wilson

I gave the couple a hint of a design that would work great with the bones of their home. They weren’t ready for it, and they embarrassed themselves and that’s too bad. – Douglas Wilson

Being in the design industry, I’ve tended to meet more people who are affected by HIV and AIDS. – Douglas Wilson

The Final Jeopardy! questions seem to be, by design, things you can’t know. And so it’s not about who knows them, but who can figure them out in thirty seconds. – Ken Jennings

At our company, our Design and Construction Consulting Service Team not only helps eliminate the risks inherent in the construction process, they typically save our clients 5% – 10% on overall construction costs. They also help make sure projects come in on time. – Roger Staubach

It was always my goal to ‘up the ante’ on good design and rye devoted much of my career to this. – Michael Graves

I do believe that there are some universal cognitive tasks that are deep and profound – indeed, so deep and profound that it is worthwhile to understand them in order to design our displays in accord with those tasks. – Edward Tufte

I would like to mention that I have flown the 262 first in May ’43. At this time, the aircraft was completely secret. I first knew of the existence of this aircraft only early in ’42 – even in my position. This aircraft didn’t have any priority in design or production. – Adolf Galland

Longhorns are unique – each and every one of them is a different color with a different design. – Janine Turner

I design my shots. I walk the rehearsal as the camera and say ‘this is where I want to be… I want this look. – Debbie Allen

I discovered at an early age that all I’ve ever wanted to do is design. – Jonathan Ive

Perhaps I’d like to design cars, but I don’t think I’d be much good at it. – Jonathan Ive

If you’re talking to an architect, he can look at a blank piece of paper, and once the initial design is there, the formula kicks in. Each room should have something unique and different about it – much the same way that in a song, every eight bars or so, a new piece of information should be introduced. – Ryan Tedder

Computers are scary. They’re nightmares to fix, lose our stuff, and, on occasion, they crash, producing the blue screen of death. Steve Jobs knew this. He knew that computers were bulky and hernia-inducing and Darth Vader black. He understood the value of declarative design. – Wesley Morris

It was something I was more interested in myself. When I went to see my sister dance at ballet, I was really into costumes and the arts, and my family was also supportive of whatever me and my sister wanted to do. I would say I pushed myself the most to be into design. – Christian Siriano

So I went for engineering, specifically product design, which I enjoyed. – Debi Thomas

When I started this project, I was a young architect. I was very apprehensive about any changes to the design. Whether I wanted to or not, I learned that you can accept some changes to its form without compromising its intent. But it’s a leap of faith that I didn’t want to make initially – to put it mildly. – Michael Arad

For two years nobody talked about anything other than the name arrangement. There was no fund-raising and no progress being made on construction and design. – Michael Arad

How do you design it so that people can form a space of their own, and feel quiet and contemplative? – Michael Arad

I really appreciate artists of the 20th century, and I can see a lot of their influence on my work, but to suggest that my design only fits within an ‘ism’ kind of bothers me. – Michael Arad

I used to design for my body, which was flat-chested with big hips. That’s why my clothes were tight on top with full skirts. – Betsey Johnson

We have no general conceptual thrust for the band, other than trying to make music that keeps our interest. When things are novel, they are probably things we have discovered by accident or investigation rather than by design. – Steve Albini

Initially, it was the unpractical in fashion that brought me to design my own line. I felt that it was much more attractive to cut clothes with respect for the living, three-dimensional body rather than to cover the body with decorative ideas. – Jil Sander

I think there is always a need for pure design. With pure design, you don’t need so much decoration. – Jil Sander

It may sound ambitious, but I really hope that modern design will spread all around the globe. – Jil Sander

Everyone by now presumably knows about the danger of premature optimization. I think we should be just as worried about premature design – designing too early what a program should do. – Paul Graham

I had been impressed by the fact that biological systems were based on molecular machines and that we were learning to design and build these sorts of things. – K. Eric Drexler

Punk’s influence on music, movies, art, design and fashion is no longer in doubt. It is used as the measurement for what is cool. – Malcolm Mclaren

Through all aspects of society be it art, design, the financial markets, government, technology or communications we are witnessing unprecedented global transformation – the result of which is impossible to predict. – Malcolm Mclaren

So the premise of ‘The Submission’ is that there’s an anonymous competition to design a 9/11 memorial and it’s won by an American Muslim, an architect born and raised in Virginia, and his name is Mohammad Khan. – Amy Waldman

I have had this view of the optimization of the electrode design for a long time. Historically we went through various phases in the work and eventually worked on large sheets – very large sheets – of palladium. – Martin Fleischmann

If there is a gay uniform, the differences are in how each man coordinates the details: the brand and cut of the jeans, the design of belts and boots, the haircut, the number and size of earrings. – Lance Loud

Wherever there is a design that is highly successful in a broad range of similar environments, it is apt to emerge again and again, independently – the phenomenon known in biology as convergent evolution. I call these designs ‘good tricks.’ – Daniel Dennett

There is a group of individuals who are radical jihadists. We need to call them by name. They believe it is OK to kill people in the name of their religion. It is not all of Islam. It is not all Muslims. But there is a subgroup who believe it is OK. In fact, it is their plan and design to kill people. – Tim Pawlenty

And I think my sexuality was heavily repressed by the church, by the, you know, the design of the mortal sins. – Thomas Keneally

So much of it is the design of the shot or the motion of the character it’s the work you do so that it has the same things that are in the movie. In just a few frames it’s got to communicate something clearly and dramatically. – Dennis Muren

Unfortunately, the client that exists today is still pretty much the prototype design. – Shawn Fanning

English is taking over the world. I just wrote a piece about it. And it’s not by design. The United States dominates because it’s the biggest market. – Norman Spinrad

My training as an engineer has enabled me to design the stuff, but the reason I do it is not to make music but for the opportunity to work with musicians. – Robert Moog

The point is that I don’t design stuff for myself. I’m a toolmaker. I design things that other people want to use. – Robert Moog

Leon Theremin’s original designs are elegant, ingenious and effective. As electronics goes, the theremin is very simple. But there are so many subtleties hidden in the details of the design. It’s like a great sonnet, or a painting, or a speech, that is perfectly done on more than one level. – Robert Moog

We used to be referred to as bakers and then we became known as cake decorators and now we are known as cake designers. I teach at the French Culinary Institute in New York and cake design is a legitimate profession. – Ron Ben-Israel

It was by design that we mostly used pictures that you could not necessarily see what was going on, and that didn’t really focus in on the band, but instead focused in on a theme. – Mike McCready

There is not necessarily a good reason why a regulator should have to be involved in product design and marketing for rich and sophisticated investors. We recommend that such investors should be able to sign a piece of paper, which allows them to go ahead and buy unregulated products at their own risk. – John Redwood

Last year, Congress gave the Department of Defense the authority to design a new civilian personnel system for its employees as part of the defense authorization bill. – Norm Dicks

I design some of my own clothes now. – Kiernan Shipka

I now add, farther, that the apostle’s argument is so far from proving it to be the duty of people to obey, and submit to, such rulers as act in contradiction to the public good, and so to the design of their office, that it proves the direct contrary. – Jonathan Mayhew

Biological engineering is not necessarily understanding systems but rather, I want to be able to design and build biological systems to perform particular applications. – Drew Endy

It is to be noted that when any part of this paper appears dull there is a design in it. – Richard Steele

Once I got out of architecture school I decided not to be an architect, I just started my own little design studio. – Joseph Kosinski

I don’t set goals. Like, that’s what I want to be doing however many years from now. I do what I love to do at the moment. If I wake up tomorrow and decide I want to dance, that’s what I’d do. Or design clothes. – Ayumi Hamasaki

And just when we were at the end of our design process there was the news that the Italian government and the U.S. government had signed an agreement to fly the first Italian astronaut on that flight. – Umberto Guidoni

I do what I love to do at the moment. If I wake up tomorrow and decide I want to dance, that’s what I’d do. Or design clothes. I think I’d throw myself into whatever I’m doing now. It’s not about abandoning what I was doing before, or giving up. It’s about knowing that if I die tomorrow, I lived the way I wanted to. – Ayumi Hamasaki

Even private persons in due season, with discretion and temper, may reprove others, whom they observe to commit sin, or follow bad courses, out of charitable design, and with hope to reclaim them. – Isaac Barrow

In both business and personal life, I’ve always found that travel inspires me more than anything else I do. Evidence of the languages, cultures, scenery, food, and design sensibilities that I discover all over the world can be found in every piece of my jewelry. – Ivanka Trump

It is very important to lead the field and innovate in game design. – John Romero

You have to design and program differently. Combat action in an MMO is so different to combat in a first-person shooter. – John Romero

Good design is making something intelligible and memorable. Great design is making something memorable and meaningful. – Dieter Rams

By the fourth grade, I graduated to an erector set and spent many happy hours constructing devices of unknown purpose where the main design criterion was to maximize the number of moving parts and overall size. – Steven Chu

Golf course design is exciting. – Tom Kite

I’m really not for famous people who design a line for a company, when you know it’s not really them creating it but a team of designers, especially when there are so many talented people who’ve taken the time to go and study fashion. – Bonnie Wright

Well, yes, I mean, I think that, you know, my sources suggest that there’s a lot of support for the notion that there is a lot of Koran abuse and that it was very much a systematic design, not just an aberration. – Jane Mayer

I love graphic design. I love working with design, and I love storytelling, so I’ve been working on a children’s book for a while, and I’d like to see that through. – Colleen Haskell

The roundness of life’s design may be a sign that there is a presence beyond ourselves. – Wally Lamb

We opened a design center in the South of England last year as part of our strategy for being close to our customers and developing innovative products for exciting new markets. – David Milne

Dubstep has everything for me. Rhythm, sound design, heartfelt emotion – all in one place. – James Blake

In any case, his judgment and set of values, acting alone or through his assistants, determine not only what is gold and what is dross but the design of the history which he creates out of the metal. The historian decides what is significant, and what is not. – Samuel E. Morison

I don’t design cars. I’m not a designer. I know what I desire to be built, I know what the end result is, the horsepower, the competition we’ll be working against – but I leave it to the people who work with me to put it all together. I don’t do anything. – Caroll Shelby

I do two things. I design mobile computers and I study brains. – Jeff Hawkins

It is not that you do wrong by design, but that you should never do right by mistake. – Junius

But my point is that you design something in the end that precludes any unhealthy trading practices that are not going to serve your environmental or your economic objectives but now is not the time to do it. – John Anderson

I’m into designing houses and interior design. I like change. I like creating things out of nothing. – Chris Kirkpatrick

I’ve always loved interior design. – Genie Francis

Once you come up with a premise, you have to work out how it all happened. It’s a bit like coming up with a spectacular roof design first. Before you can get it up there, you need to build a solid foundation and supporting structure. – Linwood Barclay

Nothing they design ever gets in the way of a work of art. – Robert Hughes

The design of those commissioners, frigates and warlike force is directed rather against Long Island and these your Honors’ possessions, than to the imagined reform of New England. – Peter Stuyvesant

I finished high school there and then I went to Rhode Island School of Design. – Stephen Sprouse

Of course, I did lots of what would be called graphic design now, what used to be called commercial art. – Leonard Baskin

When the Grateful Dead needed a quality sound system to deliver our sonic payload, I learned electronics and speaker design. – Mickey Hart

IBM was the original contractor for much of the computer interface design on the film. – Douglas Trumbull

My particular aesthetic of light and color and design wouldn’t change as a result of working with computer graphics rather than with slit scan or miniatures. – Douglas Trumbull

There were IBM logos designed for the film, and there were IBM design consultants working with Kubrick on the layout of the controls and computer screens. – Douglas Trumbull

I brought a lot of my own pieces of clothes to the design room when I first met with the design team just so they could see what my style was like. – Nastia Liukin

I believe consistency and orthogonality are tools of design, not the primary goal in design. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

Actually, I didn’t make the claim that Ruby follows the principle of least surprise. Someone felt the design of Ruby follows that philosophy, so they started saying that. I didn’t bring that up, actually. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

Acting isn’t for me. I don’t like being told what to do. I’m more interested in set design, more visually driven. – Sofia Coppola

There is a lot of interest in the arts, music, theatre, filmmaking, engineering, architecture and software design. I think we have now transitioned the modern-day version of the entrepreneur into the creative economy. – John Baldacci

Looking back, video game design seems a natural fit, although there was no such thing when I was growing up. I built a Tic-Tac-Toe playing machine in my teens which went up in smoke on the night it was scheduled to go to a science fair. – David Crane

My background is in hardware design. I found hardware work to be a welcome change from thousands of hours of programming and that led to the designs you mentioned. – David Crane

I wear a lot of different hats – from writer to producer and artist. We all do 5 or 6 jobs, everything from creating our own graphic design to actually recording and the whole bit. – William Bell

If you decide to design your own language, there are thousands of sort of amateur language designer pitfalls. – Guido van Rossum

I am interested in computers and technology, and art, photography, and design. – William Landay

I have made bouquets of pleats, bouquets of flowers, bouquets of ruffles, bouquets of feathers. Often I design in mousseline, held tightly around the waist, and with something else going on all around. – Giambattista Valli

You all know that each title in the Chronicles has a chess theme that’s partly because of the overall design of the Chronicles themselves – the game of chess as an analogue of the game of life. – Dorothy Dunnett

If we don’t have accurate information, if we are not able to tell difficult truth one to another, we will never be able to effectively design a policy for Iraq. – Jack Reed

Usually I design the lighting and when I have the physical set there, I’m not good at going out loosely and saying, ‘Do you what you want, give it to the editor, and he’ll figure it out.’ I physically then walk on with the actors and I say, ‘Let’s walk until you guys feel the space works for you, and tell me when all that happens.’ – Tarsem Singh

The New Testament evinces its universal design in its very, style, which alone distinguishes it from all the literary productions of earlier and later times. – Philip Schaff
