Design is crucial in an age of machines.


As a designer, I sometimes find myself looking for justification of why I chose such the career path I did, and didn’t study to become an engineer, doctor or something you would be proud to tell your grandchildren.

I was comforted a bit when someone told me that design will always be needed because we will always need creative people to design robots, and computer interfaces and mobile screens. Then I thought how horrendous a world that sounds and I was back to square one.

But there is an element of truth to it. Whilst, engineering jobs will be done by robots in the not too distant future, and doctors will just be Google, at least I can make a screen look nice.
