  • Defining the Designer of 2015

    Communication, Communication Design


    An interesting Initiative is launched by the AIGA: <a href="">Defining the Designer of 2015</a>. They describe it with the following:

    <i>The design profession is changing dramatically, for good reasons: the marketplace is beginning to understand the value of design and is making demands of designers that go well beyond traditional roles. At the same time, leading designers have tools and perspective that allows them to adapt in increasingly valuable ways to the challenges of their clients.

    AIGA, in partnership with Adobe, has launched an ambitious initiative to define the professional requirements of the designer of 2015—to forecast the needs, skills and roles of the designer of the future. This year-long project will help characterize the skills, education requirements and work environments designers will face in the year 2015. The desired outcome of the Designer of 2015 initiative is to define about six general types of designers who will be needed to address communication design problems in the collaborative environment of 2015.</i>
