What is good design?

If you were asked to define what "good design" is what would you chose as examples? We assume "good design" has to fulfill its function efficiently. What other criteria would you use?

Tim Brown, president of the world-famous IDEO design group in San Francisco, thinks some of the best examples of good design are the Flip video camera (left) (now available in an HD model) and Microsoft's electronic book, the Kindle (right).

Have your students find examples of what they think is great design.
