Morrama Ten Design Principles for a Better World

Morrama's 10 Design Principles for a Better World

50 years ago a famous designer called Dieter Rams wrote the Ten Principles for Good Design. The world has changed a lot since then.

So we've updated them.

Better suited to today’s world, these refreshed principles aim to encourage designers to think more about what they ‘should’ do and not just about what they ‘can’ do. It is vital that as founders, creators, makers and even marketers, we start to question the reason for things to exist and explore what the world might look like if they didn’t.
