I completely agree with the underlying concept of quality over speed, and the idea of slower design and focus on craftsmanship, but saying “make art” is misleading or downright incorrect. Art and design are two very different things — even though their processes share many fundamental visual concepts. A great design outcome isn’t art, and a great piece of art is unlikely to be good design. It would be very poor advice to encourage designers to make art instead of doing what they are most valuable for.
