For Bike Lanes, Design Makes All The Difference | Mashable

When we think of design, we think of the products featured on Fab — functional and beautiful. "Art doesn’t just belong on your walls," boasts the product description of a simple but colorful rug. There's also the products on Kickstarter and Indiegogo that defy expectations — a bag is a bag is a bag, until it starts charging your electronics.
But if you've ever had extended contact with a real-life designer, no matter her or his specialty — you will find that design principles extend beyond just gadget features and colors. "Why is the handle here, when it should be here," this designer friend might say. Once someone has power to inspire the design of one thing, they begin seeing bits and pieces everywhere that could benefit from better design.
