Richard Hutten: Manifesto #36

Being a Homo Ludens, the playing man, I can only say one thing: Let’s play! 

Playing brings people together, playing is fun, playing is the best there is. 

I once said: “Design is traditionally about solving problems. I don’t solve problems, I create possibilities.”

Basically this is the definition of a game. As a designer I like to play, and I expect the same attitude from the user. Design should not be about designers, but about the useful and playful designs they (should) make.
