"Whenever people try to make something,
they need to begin by designing it; that is what design is about."
No matter how great your technology, concept, idea, or intention is,
it needs to be visualized, tangible, or practical in reality, which is a result of design after all.
When we see technology as a seed, the seed can be born into the form of a final product or business after going through the process of design.
The shape of your product is what makes your business complete. by Korea Institute of Design Promotion
