John Locke's description of a general idea corresponds to a description of a concept. According to Locke, a general idea is created by abstracting, drawing away, or removing the common characteristic or characteristics from several particular ideas. This common characteristic is that which is similar to all of the different individuals. For example, the abstract general idea or concept that is designated by the word "red" is that characteristic which is common to apples, cherries, and blood. The abstract general idea or concept that is signified by the word "dog" is the collection of those characteristics which are common to Airedales, Collies, and Terriers.

Design is everywhere amongst us, and the designer connects with his audience with his idea, product, physical or theoretical involvement. Success is simply the thin line that the audience crosses with an "oh, now i get it" or an exchange of belongings into an appropriatation of said designer's work.

To me, this is probably the case where pictures literally speak more and louder than words. You do not need to visit the link to AltSnk than to understand instantly the connection between the Tamiya hobby kits, the magnificent (and very famous Japanese) battleships, and carefully detailed footwear of Asics. From the color and material selection to the anchors-embossed heel caps to the traditional deck wood-panelled insole.
