CREATIVE PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION

 Realizing an improved process or design in everyday objects and tasks either by accidental chance or by studying and documenting real world experience.

My name is Steph McGlenchy, and I’m a Graphic Designer. 

The last six years I’ve had this burning (I won’t use the word rage…) anger about how design, in particular communication design has become completely commodified, with a total fixation on the end point ‘the product’ 

Today there are countless websites that are only perpetuating this homogenised commodification of design. Where ‘the product’ is simply bought at a click of a finger. Like picking an apple off the tree. Design is no longer a service but a product ripe for purchase.

We have in reality a Creative Problem Identification problem. And this is where it can be turned around.

I’ll keep pursuing this concept here on this blog.
