What makes a "good" design in my opinion : 

 The designs that usually catch my eye feel like they have depth. By depth I mean that there's a thinking process involved, knowledge, and a passion for the subject. Feeling that passion, and the unique perspective of the artist, communicated through the picture or design is why I enjoy visual art. In short : love something and try to communicate that love to the best of your ability :) 

Also, if you're designing a spacecraft, don't forget the fuel tanks !
