    A Call to Design Action

    A Call to Design Action
    The word “design” originates from the verb designare, or to designate, and if you look it up in the dictionary you’ll find it associated with words such as “intention,” “conception,” and “planning.” But being a designer is less about intention and planning than it is about action.
