Designing the Future of Design
by David Robertson

If you had to put a dream team together to run the country who would be in it? Not the individuals, but the skill sets. For me there should be a manager, an accountant, an economist, a lawyer, a medical scientist, a physical scientist, a natural scientist, a psychologist, a sociologist and a marketing professional. A rounded team who understand the current needs of the nation as a business, the country as a sustainable environment and the human needs of the population. But in addition there should be an historian and a designer. Someone to explain the past and the path we are travelling and someone to imagine the future and plan how to get there.

O P I N I O N

Is design a critical skill for organisational success?

Designing a thing is better than hoping that it'll happen
by accident. Don't you agree?

State your opinion http://www.icograda.org/web/opinion

F R O M  P R E V I O U S  O P I N I O N

Design and Ideology: Where do you sit?
In last week’s feature Slavoj Zizek made the statement, "This is what design is truly about: designers articulate the meaning above and beyond the mere functionality of a product." We asked what you thought.

74%
 Yes. Zizek's thesis accurately reflects the value of design.
16% No. Zizek is unfairly dismissing the aesthetic values of design.
13%
 While Zizek is entertaining, his thesis is irrelevant.

Totals shown may be more or less than 100% due to rounding
