The biggest problem in design today.

Most non-designers are intimidated by or dismissive of design, because it’s seen as the role of a special class of “creatives.” Design is just a way of solving problems. Designers, engineers, marketers, product managers, customer support, founders—everybody should be part of the design process. Better work and better products will be the result.

It’s great to hear from reputable designers that everyone should be a part of the process. I think often times that teams outside of design can shy away from contribution because they’re primary role is not “creative”. I think designers can be just as guilty as well for propitiating this dynamic to bolster their stake in the decision making process as well.
