I really appreciate this article Sherry. It drives me crazy when people proclaim that designers should be making art, when fundamentally they have completely different goals and processes. They share a toolbox of many of the same underlying visual principles, so it’s easy for non-designers to make the mistake that they are the same. You’ve outlined the differences really well.
