At Designtist, we believe that everything is working exactly how it was designed to work. Sure, unplanned stuff happens. But as Mike Monteiro says, designers are the gatekeepers for what they put out into the world, and they should be responsible for the impact of their design on the world.
The products we design are having a bigger impact on our day to day lives. The design of our phones mediate how we communicate with the world. Our diets are being re-engineered. Even the way we pay attention has been designed so that portions of it can be sold to the highest bidder. And while design is reshaping almost every aspect of our lives, it is often invisible. Good design usually hides itself. This is why we make videos about design at Designtist. We want to ask the question of, where are we designing to?
