Commodity, Firmnesss & Delight

Over 2,000 years ago, Vitruvius defined the essential elements of good design.
Commodity: designs should support the needs of users and the wider community.
Firmness: designs should be robust, flexible, adaptable and re-useable.
Delight: designs should maximise opportunities to inspire and create joy.
These principles are still applicable today.
