  • Everything is designed, but good design makes a difference
  • When money is tight, get the design right and it will be easy to save on expenditure further down the line
  • The recession has barely started, so don’t cut back on spend now
  • No matter how much you spend on marketing or manufacture, your project will not succeed if you starve the design budget
