5 ways design can contribute to financial success

In a distinct departure from my previous wordy articles, I thought the best way to present this subject is to graphically show examples that truly demonstrate the power of dramatic, high quality design. Some real eye candy:

1) Design can add “the” point of difference

Armani Hotel, Dubai, Giorgio Armani Designer

Commune by the Great Wall (Kempinski), Beijing, Kengo Kuma and various designers

2) Design can make the venue a “destination”

Ku De Ta, Bali, unknown designer

Hakkasan Restaurant, London, Christian Liagre

Flying Fish, Sydney, Dreamtime Australia Design

3) Design can add “points of action”

Bar, One&Only Palmilla Resort, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Adam Tihany Design

Water Garden, Bvlgari Hotel, Bali, Antonio Citterio Design

Fireplace, Whitewater Restaurant, Sydney, Dreamtime Australia Design

4) Design can target markets

Sky Bar, Mondrian Hotel, Los Angeles, Philippe Starck

Grammercy Park Hotel, New York City, Julian Schnabel

5) Design can make or break your business
(just look at those average rates!)

North Island, Seychelles, Silvio Rech/Lesley Carstens

One&Only Royal Mirage, Dubai, WATG /Wilson Associates

Taj Rambagh Palace, Jaipur, Amit & Shalini Gehlot, ASA Design

Have a creative week!
