    As far as I can tell, from limited and admittedly superficial research designers try to design things that solve problems, do things in an easier, and ideally more responsible way. Designers may be concerned with the aesthetic nature of things in our world. Designers look at issues and decide which aspects of the solution/design are negotiable and which aspects are non-negotiable. I'm wondering if you can help me define design and the role of designers. I'd like to put students in the role of designers. We do this occasionally: designing a product for sale in the school store that brands/promotes the teams. Sooo what is design? and what do designers do?
