Overview

What are the biggest changes/challenges David has seen in design in the past 20 or so years?

The gentrification of design.

Software and computers continue to make designers lazy – letting the computer make decisions for them.
This will only get worse as large scale projects are in beta testing right now that will eliminate many current design jobs.  It’s now more important than ever that designers get more personal and use their uniqueness in their work, otherwise they’ll be replaced by programs that can do what they’re doing now.

Objective

To encourage designers to look inward for inspiration, regardless of their field or area of expertise.
