8 reasons why design is dead (and how we can revive it).

8 reasons why design is dead (and how we can revive it).

I’m ashamed to call myself a designer.

I started my design journey inspired to make this world a more beautiful place. I believed that I could help visionaries build products that would allow us to realize the best version of themselves and utilize their full creative potential. Instead I succumbed to becoming a cog to the tyrannical apathetic tech culture of engineering and bureaucracy.

Right now tech is being designed using illusive design patterns aimed at depleting our dopamine reservoir resulting in increased rates of anxiety, exploiting our emotions through social status play resulting in increased stress and disregarding our values and boundaries resulting in the prevention of us becoming the best version of ourselves. Design has no power. Design is dead.
