Three Design Questions

November 27, 2012

1. What is a designer?

            A designer is a creator.  It is someone who is aware of certain problems, whether those problems are his own or that of a client, and creates something in response and, hopefully in solution, to the problem.  As stated in the article, there are three types of designers (product designers, communication designers, and environmental designers), and each plays a distinct role when developing a solution. 

2. What are a designer’s responsibilities?

            A designer’s responsibility is to himself and the clients he chooses to work for.  In generating a practical solution, he should be conscious of what problem he is addressing, financial constraints, and the overall effectiveness of his work.  Since his work could potentially have an immense impact on society, he should remain aware at all times.

3. What do you envision as your path over next 5 years?

            I have always been drawn to design, and I hope to work in a career that will allow me to develop this passion.  I am not sure what I may be doing specifically, but I think that is all part of the process. All I do know is that I want to attend grad school.  After that, however, I am open to whatever opportunity God may put on my path.  Hopefully, through these opportunities, I can develop who I am, and what it all essentially means to be a designer.
