Design is among the more complex tasks that humans perform. It is the process of producing artifacts that have desired properties and meet some functional requirements. Designing is a central skill in many human tasks: Architects deal with shape and form to create new buildings, financial planners manipulate money to design profitable portfolios, and mechanical engineers design functional machines with parts such as gears and cams.
