It said “Design is just making things line up.” It inspired other designers to create wallpapers that said what design meant to them. Eventually, someone decided to make a Flickr pool collecting lots of “Design is” wallpapers.

And now, I have wallpapers to add to the collection and they are below. I will provide different sizes later.

Design is Balance Design is Semantic
