  • Title
    First, what is the meaning of design?
    What is the job of a designer?
    What kind of person makes a great designer?
  • Abstract
    What is design? What does a designer do? What kind of person is an excellent designer? If the definition of the design is blurred, it is not clear what the designer does. During the 1990’s, when I working for the Italian automobile design and manufacturing company called called Carrozzeria, there was a worldwide automobile boom. We undertook design project requests from automobile manufacturers from around the world. At that time, many automobile companies relied on the experience and skills of well known Carrozzerias. Today, almost all automobile manufacturers have dedicated design staff with the ability to fully design their products within the company. In today’s world, the role of designers vary greatly depending on the type of field the designer is working in. There are industrial designers, fashion designers, graphic designers, user-interface designers, architect designers, and many more. I will explain these differences based on experience.
