In this design quote Christopher Anton means: When people interact with beautifully designed objects or processes, among their first reactions is that the creator was simply brilliant or perhaps just lucky. In truth, whoever is behind the product was likely methodical in their design process. The easier something is to use and the better it looks, feels, and functions are more likely a reflection of the considerable amount of time and effort expended into the design process. Testing, theorizing, troubleshooting, and considering all the ways something might fail or be perceived incorrectly all lead to flawless designs.
