Design excellence is about achieving a design which fulfills it’s brief purpose and is long lasting. Design should be innovative buts should not depend on trends, it should always have a sense of timelessness, of elegance. As designers we want to put ourselves into the work, however, the key to achieving excellence is realising that essentially it’s not yours, it belongs to people who see it, use it and design should reflect this awareness.
