There’s nothing quite like a good design that sticks with people. Just think of it… Imagine Apple without its half-bitten apple, or McDonalds with no golden arches, or the never-changing look of Leica camera, which shows that when you keep being different from everything, changing makes no sense.

These are some of the best design examples of our times, but that doesn’t mean it stops here. There’s a whole Reddit community dedicated entirely to design goodness of all kinds, whether it’s graphic design, advertising, architecture, furniture, or product design.

From a really cool design made for the Tokyo Olympics to animal pics made from as many pixels as that of the endangered species' population, these are some of the most creative ideas that prove just what an art a good design can be. Scroll down, upvote your favorites, and let us know which ones you like the best in the comment section!

In order to find out the secret to timeless, captivating, and game-changing design, Bored Panda reached out to Emanuele Abrate, an Italian graphic designer who specializes in creating visual identities and brand logos. We previously wrote on two of Emanuele’s projects, where he recreated blank logos in a sleeker way and revealed the fonts behind the world’s most iconic brand logos.

Emanuele told us that the key aspect in timeless design is simplicity. “A simple logo is easily memorable, it enters people's minds and sticks to them.” However, it may be easier said than done. “Obviously, creating something simple is not easy at all, because it must be simultaneously engaging, non-trivial, and suitable for the context it has to represent,” the designer explained.

In order to do so, one has to study good concepts. “Think of the Nike logo. It’s such an extremely simple sign that virtually anyone could reproduce it. At the same time, it conveys the concept of dynamism and speed.”

In order for a project to go viral, it has to have features that will make people share it. There are some techniques to follow.

“First, the sense of humor is key. Secondly, any project that aims to become viral should have something that’s well-known to people. And thirdly, it should feature a collection of images.” In other words, a low-volume project with a single image which has nothing recognizable or universal in it for people to relate to is unlikely to go viral.

However, Emanuele believes that every designer has their own method of coming up with unique designs, and it’s up to the creator to decide which way works the best for them. “The beautiful thing about this creative field is that everyone always has something to learn from other creators.”

I remember being in Chicago for business when the temperature with wind chill was -32 degrees F. When we walked from our hotel to dinner, (all on same block), I vividly remember seeing homeless people. They would be sitting on a piece of cardboard, shaking a cup for donations. I would die if I was homeless like that. Homeless people may have issues but they are so incredibly strong and brave. If you don't like to give them money, ask if they are hungry. I do it all the time, 9+/10, they will say they are. I ask them what they would like and go buy it and return. But for a turn of our luck and a wink of our eyes, it could be any of us!

Sorry Erika but the ones that choose to live like that are a minority. A lot of people who are homeless suffer mental health issues or are homeless due to circumstances beyond their control like family breakdowns, job loss which causes loss of home etc. I have done a lot of research on this matter coz my biggest dream is to create a homeless hub, a place where all the services they need are in one place. Homelessness is very complicated and the individuals often need a wide variety of services to help them, the problem is they are scattered all over the place and not always easy to get to or access.

I grew up in a town with an absurd amount of homeless people. I didn't realize it was abnormal to see until I traveled farther away from the coast, and to other countries. Luckily, they were treated decently well.

Monika Soffronow

Sorry, but it seems to me that they were 'tolerated' because if they had been "treated decently well" they would have been helped out of homelessness and into work and accommodation, and hence would not have been without shelter.
