    Design is a reflection of culture and designers should be aware of the context in which they create work. Designers need to be well-versed in the arts, literature, the news, fashion, etc. We're making work for the WORLD we want to live in. Forming an echo chamber of tutorials and talks about flat-design shouldn't be what design is about. As for the shit-talking, I don't see it as a big problem. There's too much congratulatory sycophancy in this industry as it is.

      So true! We need to be cultural sponges. Its our job to take in everything and store it. Who knows, it may influence some of our future projects.

      Sycophancy is an awesome word.
