George and Barbara

"The hallmark of my career has been creating things of beauty and utility and finding solutions to tricky problems where one normally would not think to look."

George E. Brooks, Industrial Engineer, Designer

"Designers must have a high level of competence, interest in engineering technology and a wish to work creatively in the field of design for manufacture. The field appeals to those with a desire to innovate, enjoy complex problem solving and make a direct contribution to the quality of life. The art combines functional quality, technical feasibility and aesthetic quality."

History of Industrial Design, Denis Gadbois

"Industrial designers are people with a desire to create. They combine knowledge with artistic ability to turn abstract ideas into formal designs for the merchandise we buy, the clothes we wear, the publications we read and the living and office space we inhabit. Creativity is crucial in all design occupations."
