Slow is Just SlowIt is common to ascribe a variety of philosophies to slow design such as the suggestion that it's holistic or democratic. None of this is necessarily true. The main push behind slow design is that a designer not feel rushed and take time to produce a design that feels right. It's not necessarily aligned with a design philosophy such as sustainable design.
