I have a friend, Alex. He is a successful businessman who owns a couple of online marketplaces. It’s hard to find a person who will be as much a perfectionist as Alex is. He likes it when his workplace is perfectly clean; he gets irritated when his wife puts milk on a wrong shelf of the fridge; as I was saying, Alex loves it when things are in a flawless order.

What is the main difference between design and art? At the time when art asks questions, design offers solutions. Thus, a communication is crucial when it comes to designs. You cannot solve a task if you don’t clearly understand what it is about.
