Eccledesigniates is my attempt to revive the ancient wisdom of Designah, the Original Designer.
Chapters: Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 4
Designah, King in Jeusabilitem, says so: “Useless! Useless! Utterly useless! Everything is useless.”
What do designers gain from all their labors at which they toil around users? Problems come and go, but users remain.
The problem blows to the stakeholder and turns to the designer; round and round it goes, ever returning on its due.
All designs turn into the experience, yet the experience is never full. To the place the empathy comes from, there it reprises again.
All experiences are wearisome, more than user can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.
What has been will be again, what has been designed will be designed again; there is nothing new under the hood.
Is there any design one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was designed already, long ago, before our time.
No one remembers the outdated designs, and even those yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow them.
I, Designah, is king over Userael in Jeusabilitem. I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is designed under the heavens.
I have seen all the things that are designed for the users; all of them are useless, a chasing after the clients.
What is experienced cannot be designed; what is lacking cannot be counted.
I said to myself, “Look, I have increased in wisdom more than anyone who has designed in Jeusabilitem before.”
Then I applied myself to the understanding of design, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the user.
For with much design comes much experience; the more empathy, the more use.
More to come…
