Life and beauty both play essential roles in our lives. Good designs will have it all—aesthetic pleasure, art, creativity—and at the same time be usable, workable, and enjoyable. There is no need to sacrifice budget costs, function, manufacturing, or sales market to achieve the maximum value of a product. For skillful craftsmen, it is their passion, motivation, and ability to create things that are usable and creative, pleasurable and completely workable. That is why style of beauty and creativity of products are so critical in design, manufacturing, engineering, fashion, and everyday lives.
