    Image alt It's not about being threatened that's the problem; it's about people's perception of the value of good design.

      Completely agree. I'm not worried about losing clients to Squarespace because that's not the market I cater. However, with ads like Moto X "Whatever you are + designer" and now Squarespace logo, the perception is "anybody can do it." As we'd all agree, that's not the case.

      Your job as a designer is to educate your clients to the value of good design. It's not their job to know it already.

        It definitely is, but it shouldn't be (your job). You don't see an electric engineer having to convince his clients of the value of good electric engineering.

        It is what it is, but I do think we should aim towards a market in which "justifying your existence as a professional" is not part of the job description.
