Today I read an article in Modenus Blog. I want to share this article with you. Not only is wonderfully written but it reflects exactly what I feel is happening to our industry. Here is the link to the blog post. Darren Morgan is the author of this article. Thank you Darren for sharing your insight.

Below are a few responses from designers around the world that I noted as having interesting points to make.
Brendan Watson • "In my experience the very best Design comes 'through' the designer, not from the designer.
The best Design expresses *itself * to the eye of the beholder with little need for superfluous commentary or promotion.
The best Designers understand that talent and ability are not *dependent* on recognition, awards and celebrity status, though these may well follow.
The best kitchen design practice is a collaborative and cooperative enterprise of which Design is just one (significant) component. Project management, for example, is a very significant component and also has to be intelligently 'designed'.
The client,her aspirations and expectations, are at the heart of this, not the designer."
