“ Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. “
Have you ever thought how a life starts on Earth? Have you ever thought about the existence of the sun, moon and stars? What is the reason for their existence?
Knock knock ! Wake up !
It’s a new day, a new way to start your life and some new things we do. The designers think they have done it all. I’m not talking negative, rather I’m talking reality. The fact is that God is the ultimate creator. God gives us a basic structure, a basic framework to slay our talent. But the significant things that the designers miss out on, the distraction caused by normal things and in reality big things that happen around them, is worth noting.
The designers have an attitude that they know everything and the feeling that they have been the chosen one with special talent. What we need to understand here is the fact that creativity is something that is not exclusive to only the designers. It is something bestowed upon an individual by God. Just because they can draw well and have the skills does not entitle them to be the supreme jewel of creativity. The mere presentation of things in a glittering way, in a fancy way does not mean that the designers are the GOD of creation. Every Human Being is creative, but not everyone is a designer.
If we take an example of the inception of a life in a mother’s womb, the intricacy with which God has designed it all is absolutely unquestionable.
“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly and get on with improving your other innovations.”
Being a designer does not assure one of being the best, being perfect. It does not mean that one can think bad about others, how much inferior one feel about others. They can beat you at any point. People have the flair, ingenuity about the main difference that underlines the society of the designers from others is the fact that how to present a thought in a visual format. The designers are artists who represent things in a people-friendly manner.
Creativity is a gift given to all. How do you perceive it and bring it out in front of the world is on your hands. There are the people who have managed to bring their thinking to a level which made them so creative. So what is creativity ? A gift or skill. Well, the answer is both, in fact somewhere between that.
God has given us the basic elements of life; namely earth, water, air and fire. We are all a part of this nature, but we carry different identities. We get our basic learning from the nature. A designer though challenges God’s creation.
Creation is a continuous process. A designer has to kill his design in order to survive or succeed, otherwise there are others who would grab the opportunity. You can present an artistic form which is connected to you emotionally but at the same time people may not find it as good as you. This is your personal memorandum and when you know how to keep that away from you and present it in an understandable way, you are an emblazoned designer.
Unlearning leads to learning, destruction leads to construction. Adapting to the environment is significant. The goal of a designer is to listen, observe, understand, sympathize and glean insights that enable him or her to make the invisible visible.
Thus a designer is a Human with special ability, but he is not a God of creation.
