#1Designers tend to come from the world of fashion or architecture. Why do we suddenly need a digital designer as well?
Because we need someone who can design and organise digitalisation projects in a professional manner.
When it comes to the building industry, no one asks why architects are needed. This almost amuses me. Everyone can see that designing buildings is a job for specialists. The same applies to industrial design; everyone just accepts that the design of good products is a profession in itself. Digitalisation and software are probably the most complex technologies that human beings have so far come up with. Shouldn’t you need someone for this or at least offer them specialised training?
