Hi, im a first year BA graphic design student in south London, currently seeking some primary research for my essay based of the participatory culture we live in. I have five questions which i would be honored if any designers or curators for your company would be kind enough to help me out and answer these questions below based on this topic. Questions 1.What is the main role and purpose of a graphic designer? 2. Are you fore or against the public contributing to any design media contents?and why? 3. How has the role of a graphic designer changed over time from clients wants and needs ? (e.g creating user design tools and templates ). 4.Have you ever created a participatory design for a client? if so at what stages of the design process were participants involved? and what impact did this have towards the outcome? 5. How can designers lead the new breed of widely distributed amateur creatives rather than be overrun by them?
