Originality in design is often ridiculed, vilified, glorified, revered, denigrated and denounced, but the one thing you cannot do is ignore it. People like to pigeonhole things into what they know, to categorise and compare to the existing paradigm, rather than considering the new with fresh eyes and an open mind. However, occasionally a design seems to hit the right spot and the flood gates of acceptance open, allowing the compliments to pour in along with the inevitable criticism.

Acceptance feels good, but the criticism is equally welcomed, the killer for design is not criticism but indifference.
