Regardless of its purpose, every one of the August 2017 design trends is an intelligent design. Though those designs' creators can't possibly have imagined every possible use case for their products, let alone predetermining each of those use cases, their forethought is proof that an intelligent designer exists as the originator of all things in the August 2017 design trends.
The best designs usually draw attention for either aesthetic or functional reasons, and truly revolutionary designs manage to combine both at once. One such example is the Boundary pack system, which has an attractively rugged urban style while offering dozens of design features to make it as modular and adaptable as possible for commuters and travelers alike.
There are some designs that merely exist to be looked at, on the other hand. Eric Nado's ‘Metra Littres’ project, in fact, takes functional typewriters and repurposes them into models of machine guns (which don't fire bullets but look spectacular nonetheless.)
