Thommas Mathews. Good design - appropriate, sustainable and beautiful

Hello and welcome to Good Design.

My name is Joseph Maduma. I am a graphic designer and design thinker. This blog is a collection of my thoughts, things that inspire me, things that make me smile and my own designs. The theme is good design, design that looks good and does good. As a designer i am passionate about how design can be used to improve society and generally make the world a better place to live. The Design Council's definition of good design is:

"Good design is sustainable design. It results in objects, systems or services that work aesthetically, functionally and commercially, improving people’s lives and making the smallest possible impact on the planet.”

This blog explores all aspects of what constitutes 'good design' from an ethical, social, sustainable and aesthetic point of view.

In short it's the world of design as seen through my eyes, hope you like!
