Why Design Matters!

Design matters because great design guides people in a way that creates positive interactions
with downtown districts, individual buildings, websites…or even a can opener.

Design matters because it takes useful elements and makes them more useful.
Design isn’t just eye candy glued to the surface of something.

Designers reinvent the thing from the center out to be efficient, effective and beautiful.

Designers turn problems into opportunities!

‘Design Matters to Raleigh’ is a group of Raleigh citizens mixed with design professionals who come together to impact our city. Winston Churchill explained the impact of design when he said, “We shape our city and it, in turn, shapes us.”
