Designer’s Poison (by Frank Chimero)
In this personal blog post, designer Frank Chimero debriefs a Twitter event hosted by AIGA called One Day For Design. His post revolves around what he calls the ten designer’s poisons – “the dispositions and mistakes of the field that I saw both addressed as problems and manifested in behavior in One Day for Design’s live stream.” He raises some awesome points about liberalizing design, inviting more people (especially our clients!) to the table, and societal understanding of design as a noun, not a verb. Great read with some links to other good articles.
Frank Chimero is an accomplished designer based in Brooklyn, NY. He is a frequent speaker at design conferences, has taught at various schools including SVA, and has a long list of big clients including Nike and The New York Times.
