"Design is where science and art break even."
— Robin Mathew

Robin Mathew is a graphic designer in San Diego California. She deals with designing and implementing websites. I found this quote from just reading through a variety of quotes by designers posted online at None of them really jumped out at me or described design how I see it as this one does. I'm studying physiology and basically the design of the human body. There is this exhibit called the Body Worlds that travels around. They dehydrate dead bodies then plastinate them. They are cut into different view of each and every part and died for better distinction. At this exhibit you can see the actual design of the body and how we get our ideas to design. If you really think about the quote design is where art and science meet. Science helps us build all the sky scrapers, the monuments, and the architecture as well as all of the tools and things that fulfill our aesthetic needs. Art added to the science of building and how things work allows us to make new products and things to enrich our lives and please our senses.

  2. This is regarding your post which connects the author of the quote- "Design is where science and art break even." Robin Mathew, being a graphic designer from California, but as the rightly credited author, 'He' is a Design Entrepreneur from India. So would request you to kindly alter the same.

  3. Absolutely! The graphic designer from San Diego California has no connection with the quote, her name is Robin Mathews. This quote is written by Robin Mathew, a design entrepreneur from India.
