    Designers should not seek out trends to jump on they should think creatively for the problem at hand and strive to at least be original with their concept/approach. Real designers keep things from getting stagnant, not the design community.

    Because young designers dont understand that this is not design...it's illustration. Design is communication and problem solving in service to a client or product. New designers are too lazy to reinvent so they just bite each other and put style over substance, I mean why actually challenge yourself to come up with something new that's tailored to a clients needs when you can just download this trendy illy pack.

    I hope that the library is also used as a base so people can put their own spices and materials and make it their own.

    You know that no one will do this.

    Product designers are notoriously lazy and use kits like this for everything. Graphic designers might actually try to do their own flip but doubtful.

    Illustrators market style and get hired specifically for their style. Designers need to adapt to the needs of a client.

    If you are doing one specific style for everything you are basically an artist or illustrator.

    Because 99% of designers and ad agencies are liberal/progressive and will only accept to work on campaigns for Democrats (I.e. Hillary,Obama...) They get the good work.

    I like the red/green cards at Brazilian steakhouses. Maybe you can write an article about that too.
