    This is a great synopsis of a profession (yet again) struggling with enormous change. Having successfully adapted to the changes in the late 20th century, where new technologies completely transformed the design industry, now I find myself struggling with this new shift—where thinking becomes the point, not a means to a marketable product. This marks a switch from designer as consultant to businesses with a goal of increasing profits, to designer as an agent of social change.

    And I wonder, are we up to it?

    Beautifully presented and very well said (and design/thought)!

    Thanks David and Jonathan!
    I agree that we are into a period of intense change in Design thinking and most particularly in the way in which Design functions in the world.
