“It seems like the Design uprising has started. The diverse participants of design have started the conversation and realized that they are members of one ecosystem. Simultaneously, the user of design has become more sophisticated and demanding. Also the feeling of belongin, identity and sense of self-esteem about inherited and newfound skills and the excellence of their usage has increased. It is time for design!”
