Two that I use consistently with my clients, in the start of any project:


"Good design incorporates: Fit, Function, Beauty and Budget."

"Don't think everything has to match; Think "Repetition without sameness"."

To quote a mentor, Paul Daniels:

Repetition to infinity creates monotony.

Repetition done tastefully creates harmony.
