Design Theory IV: Design

Can you explain why design is worth studying? Can anyone be a designer?

Design is worth studying because without design everything would be different. The whole world of advertising and design would either be non-existent or just completely different. People probably would care as much about how things looked. Everything would just be a cliche or straight to the point. There would be no “wow” factor to anything. I feel like everything would be dull and boring without design. To study design and learning how the concepts work with the message really is something you need to learn and study. Not everyone is a designer and the people that are not start to give regular people terrible designs that should never have been released in the first place. The fact is you need to study design to be able to completely understand how this field works.

In the link below, there are these two people having a debate whether anyone can be a designer. The one man states that people make decisions every day and most people think they are entitled to make decisions about good and bad design. The other man said that design is not about problem solving it is about consumer choice. He also states that if everyone were to act like designers then everyone might have a better understanding of design and how it works.
