Flippin' reeks of privilege.
It's just another term for design generalist rather than a specialist. It can be useful to communicate this difference in some situations. But it does sound a little stupid.
Some feedback from me.
Did you even do any market validation on this one dude. I'm just not sure I understand what problem this product is solving.
