Designers Suck

“The blogs and websites are full of designers shouting how awful it is that now, thanks to Macs, Web 2.0, even YouTube, EVERYONE is a designer…Designers are saying that Design is everywhere, done by everyone. So Design is debased, eroded, insulted. The subtext, of course, is that Real design can only be done by great star designers. 

This is simply not true.”

Bruce Nussbaum, excerpted from Are Designers The Enemy Of Design? on BusinessWeek

I don’t completely agree or disagree with Nussbaum here; he brings up a few good points, contradicts himself a little, and paints with a VERY wide brush. It’s an interesting read nonetheless.
