I’m a designer. So I know this post is going to piss off a lot of other designers. But I’m also a terrible liar, so I thought I’d come clean…
Design isn’t about art anymore. It’s about simplicity. It’s about storytelling. It’s about results.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the art side of it. I always wanted to BE an artist. But, with the exception of a few niches, elaborate designer art just doesn’t often convert browsers to buyers.
That’s all you need to know.
