Designer’s professionalisation, designer career

” Schools of design train desin students to be creative, to create for themselves an ideal philosophy and to apply different methodologies of design development but they do not train them in career advancement” Jacky Moulin – SEB

More our curriculum will be professionalised, more we will have to handle with careers. One thing is to create, one is to evolve to strategic positions corresponding to the role of design and innovation in the companies.

  1. I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!

  2. To make no career at all is also a possible way of making a career. What Jacky Moulin states is that there is only one way for a designer: to make a commercial career. But this is perhaps a one way solution. Same as in other branches as advertising agencies, designers following this objective only expand willingly existing commercial structures. And as long as they are mainly proud to be a part of the system they tend to overestimate their capacities for inherent change of those structures. They ar “in use” as anybody else who is not aware of ideological tendencies who mainly rule this over-commercialised world.

    1. My position is not to declare “there is one way that may be better than the others.” My purpose is to open the possibilities to be a designer, and so, to respect all type of creation and career.
      As you say “to make no career at all is also a way of making a career”, i agree 100%.
