» Is Design the New Marketing? from AiAlone.com
I am a bit loathed to make that close of a tie between Design and Marketing, but it is a question that has been brewing in my head for a while.nbsp; There are many overlaps between the disciplines.nbsp; The fundamental difference I see is tha... [Read More]


From Richard Dreyfuss' Designing for People (circa 1955): "...design is a silent salesman, an unwritten advertisement, an unspoken radio or television commerical, contributing not merely increased efficiency and a more pleasing appearance to their products but also assurance and confidence." I would definitely pay more for a Dyson. Just read Thoughtless Acts, pretty cool.

Thanks for putting this concept out front. Great marketing without a product to back it up will only make the product fail faster, or compete based on price faster.

I like Dyson's ads. He's a good spokes person but then I'm a sucker for the testimonial style presentation.

So, have you tried the vacuum? Does it work well?

Ryan, I LOVE that quote! Wow. Plus ca change...

I can vouch for the Dyson as being not only a product of amazing design, but a product of very high quality.

It has to be the best vacuum I have ever used.

* It doesn't lose suction EVER, as advertised;
* If a part breaks (which seldom happens, it's so sturdy), the product is so modular, the specific part can be ordered directly from Dyson and replaced, allowing it to feel brand new forever;
* It cleans in depth: I nearly gave my mother in law a heart attack when I talked her into buying one. She claimed she had vacuumed that very morning and it wouldn't pick up anything. When she saw a mountain of fluff accumulate in the transparent container, she almost fainted!
* It looks absolutely fantastic :)

Overall, great design, great product. Quality speaks for itself.
