Design: Vocation or Mere Occupation?
“I’m a designer”.
We hear it all the time. Every kid with a sketchbook, graphite pencils, and a keen sense of ambition calls themself a designer; maybe even an artist. However, artist and designer are two very different things. This probably isn’t new to most of you, but to be an artist means you paint your canvas with statements and hard opinions. To be a designer however, is to be the master puzzle solver; the one who can solve problems with fractions of art and with sequential, psychological steps to prove another’s success story. Both are a calling. Both are up to the individual of whether or not their destiny will merely be an occupation, or a calling…a vocation.
