frog: What Can Professional Designers Learn From The DIY Crowd?
The internet has reshaped many a social hierarchy, is it now effecting the breakdown of the creative class?
It used to work something like this: when you had a design problem, you called in the pros. Let’s say you sought the ultimate ergonomic office chair, or a device that redefined portable audio. You called in the industry elite to create an innovative product for you. For decades, we’ve approached design as the province of experts. But in recent years, there has been an explosion of user-generated design. Talented people are going it alone and bringing their designs directly to market.
