Another very interesting piece that I read on product and design. This post highlights five interesting characteristics of good design that one can learn from k-pop.
Good design tells a story
Many k-pop videos revolve around a story. The themes within the stories range from things like unrequited love to coming of age, and everything in between.
Good design knows its audience
Back in the 2000s, k-pop music was an unlikely candidate for becoming a global sensation. So how did it succeed in such a global market? The answer is that they knew their audience. Having a clear idea of who you are designing for helps you make informed product decisions.
Good design builds trust
Good design builds trust between products and users. When a product has finish and polish, it builds trust. When a product offers value, it builds trust.
Good design effectively uses color
K-pop videos are full of vibrant colors. These are great for visual inspiration. From the set design to even the hair of the idols, colors are carefully coordinated. Color can be a powerful tool to direct people’s eyes.
