A good discussion.

Beautiful and good are not easily used together. Beauty is found in
solutions that we connect with. I find beauty in designs that are similar to
ones I have already done, or would like to do. In this way I see the value
of a solution as a reflection of knowing what goes into it. In this way the
beauty of a solution can be seen only by others who appreciate the problems
of creating it. I think a lot of good design goes unnoticed because people
do not appreciate the problems, the effort or "mental gymnastics" required
to reach a goal.
