Here's something i wrote on Medium:

A great design teacher once told me, a good product is the one that becomes a good friend. Meaning, a product is only a good product when the user loves it. That stuck to my head for its simplicity. Makes us rethink the design game, and further humanize the process.

Why not think about the products that surround us like good friends? We all did it intensively in the past and it led us to an adoration of the tool, as a helpful item in memorable experiences. We actually kept using these almost until exhaustion. With today's technology, capable of building fast things, how do we restore this faith in everyday objects? How can we trust products that are made to fail and unrepairable?
