Responsible@Designers

It’s everyone's duty to be sensible and responsible for the environment and the surroundings especially the Designers. Designers tend to be more conscious about the environment and they are supposed to work towards making it better.

May be all designers are not expected to be sensible but atleast ones who have gone through formal design education should be responsible enough?

But when you see fellow designers who are insensible, it’s very disheartening.

They don’t bother to pick up their plates, glasses, not switch off lights and fans, litter all over, not disposing waste, leaving the taps open and so on... May be we think “If one person doesn’t do it, its not going to matter” But imagine if everyone thinks in the same line its going to be terrible… People should also realize that when they leave their plates/ glasses etc. etc. behind, they are others who are going to use the same place. Just think “Will you ever sit in a place which is full of litter?”…

We designers keep talking ‘this should be this, it should be that and blah blah’… and blame others for not being responsible. Have we ever looked at ourselves, before putting it on others???

hmmm true i agree...we all should begin somewhere and stop waiting for "that person" to begin. take the initiative and start something. :)

Sadly, sensitivity and responsibility may be fine tuned by a formal design education, but it needs to be built up much earlier: that very base is perhaps missing!...

i believe that the strongest way of communicating is by setting an example.

so many times i see people who are not 'designers' and still do these basic minimum things and much more. the word 'designer' is over-hyped and maybe thats why most designers fail to deliver.

sensitivity doesn't always come from 'studying' design. design helps, but it cant do anything more than that!
