The Digital Librarian (that would be me) can see care and thoughtfulness in design. Not all the time, but when it's there, it's there. And I see these lovely Polaroid boxes and I know someone really got jazzed about this project in 1968 or whenever it was. Someone came home at night and kept thinking about it, sipping a scotch, sketching with colored pencils at the kitchen table, until it was perfect.
Yes, it's good to care.
