Eight year study attempts to define what ‘the designer of 2015’ might need to be.
Since 2006 the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) and Adobe have been working together on a project to try and define what a designer in 2015 might need to have in the way of work and life skills if they are to prosper in a rapidly changing society, where the definition of a designer is also undergoing change.
According to AIGA, the project came about through the recognition that ‘design studios and corporate departments have been looking for a new kind of designer, one that has traditional skills and yet a much broader perspective on problem solving’.
