What makes a good PCB

Give the same schematic to 100 different layout engineers and you will get at least 100 different layouts. We can then debate the trade-offs and compromises to SI, EMC, power integrity and so on and there’s plenty of reference material on these matters. But there is another factor. A ‘good looking’ PCB in my experience is often a well designed PCB. Why? I have no idea. I can only think that the best layout engineeers I have worked with also have an artistic flair and that this helps them in their design. I recently met a very interesting chap who takes the art of PCB design a step further. You can see some of Saar Drimer’s work here:
