Stubborn...

Tuesday, May 25, 2010
i think am kinda stubborn or too particular on "designer" profession or taking design profession too seriously...

This few years, i found that the trend of designing business is change. Lot of contractor or salesman started to call themselves designer and the best thing, is...this group of people who is the affordable group who, own showroom, exhibition booth...and look very convincing to educated end user, "what is design"....feel funny...therefore, i believe, lots of us might not know what a designer task.
Lot of people think that designer is :
  • the one who build cabinet loh.... so hire designer must build cabinet ....or the "designer" will show you photo, "nah this cabinet is in your living, quoted u rm XXXX, this is your kitchen rmxxxx"
  • some will think that... oh..designer = build kitchen therefore, must have showroom.
etc..etc...etc..

I respect everyone profession, but please do not give wrong info and "polluted" our profession as a designer when you not providing what a designer should. I understand that, gaining business is very important to every company, but pls respect yourselves and respect your profession.

Sometimes i ever think that, probably am just too stubborn..but i just can't change my mind, of taking myself as a businessman, than a designer.....

Really hope that, one day, designer profession will be like engineer, architect, accountant,lawyer...those who wish to practice as a designer have to be a qualify person with all practice and exam...but, will it happen? am not so sure..been waited for years.....
