Good Design (CS 355 Design Thinking Applied)

The example of good design that I saw on campus is the workbench in the SSU Makerspace.

I love the Makerspace. I went in almost every day last semester to design and iterate models to 3D print, solder some boards, or sew my backpack straps back on. The workbench is a thing of beauty, a tinkerer's shrine. Not only do they have a wonderful assortment of tools not normally accessible to college students, but everything has it's own rightful place upon the wall. There is no lurking anxiety that you may be doing something wrong. There is no countless hours searching for that one thingamabob or "like this but smaller".Very rarely are we able to feel that all is right with the world, but at least we can rejoice in the knowledge that while we are working at the bench, our immediate surroundings are perfectly in sync.
