So how do you describe “design”? “Design is about making something easy to use, or easy to understand.”

I enjoyed reading this article. A graphic designer had to describe some of what he did for a living to a group of 4+5 year olds.
 
His answers and the way he went about it was brilliant.
 
So how do you describe “design”?
 
“Design is about making something easy to use, or easy to understand.”
 
But what about “graphic design”?
 
“I use colours, letters and pictures to help people understand things.”
 
The definition he gave for “design” was brilliant and surprisingly powerful. I wouldn’t have thought of “design” in that way and yet, that’s what it is isn’t it?
