Design without functionality is useless. With the resources needed to design websites, videos and graphics at the fingertips of those who crave them, the value of communication today is evident. Many factors will shape the future of the creative design industry, so the more we share ideas the better. We would all benefit from interoperability. Our job is getting harder, because as the problems we try to solve become more intricate, so must our methods become. Less time spent catching up on the principles of design means more time to experiment with what we know.
