degreed vs self-taught

Postby Lynx » Thu Jul 18, 2019 11:56 pm

From an interview between Ellen Lupton, essayist, designer, etc. and David Barringer, published on Design Observer, 05.28.2009.

EL: Your book includes an argument between a design professional and a self-taught designer. As someone with informal training, do you ever feel that you are poaching on the territory of others or passing off lesser goods to your clients?
DB: No on both counts. I don’t sit on the bleachers and let other guys dance with my girl just because they took a few classes at Arthur Murray.
