Who/what is a designer?
Updated: Apr 4, 2019
(This is a "food for thought" post where we simply ask questions to start a conversation.)
Who is a designer?
Are the terms "designer" and "creative" synonymous?
Are all "creatives" "designers"?
Hmmm... Are all "creatives" "designers"? Personally, it reminds me of the rectangle and the square conversation. All squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares. Does this hold true, in the situation?
I am especially curious about this as 1) I work with a client on building a network of "designers" or "creatives" to help solve community problems. Is being a designer a job title or a mindset? Both?
Now I turn it over to you. What do you think? What are you seeing in your networks? Classrooms? Organizations?
