Designers are still learning to understand the world, and it’s still possible to get lost in the design process, said Andrew Gollin, head of the consultancy firm Golling.
“There are a lot of myths and misinformation around the world and it is easy to forget where we are going,” he said.
“But in the right direction, design is changing and people are looking for answers.”
When you look at design as an art, you can’t just take the basics and go straight to a box, Mr Golli said.
The biggest misconception is that we are now designing the world.
“If you ask people to describe the world they are looking at, the way they see the world is different to the way we design it.”

The biggest misconception, when it comes to design, is that designers are now learning to do the things that they used to do in the past, which is build something.
“Design is an art and it has evolved over the years,” he added.
“It has been influenced by people’s lives.”
In my experience, most people that I have talked to who have had the opportunity to design something in the last 20 years are still working in the same way.

You have to build something, you don’t have to go to the big gallery and be a model.””
You have to take the basic steps that people have been doing in the art world.
You have to build something, you don’t have to go to the big gallery and be a model.”
