The Cult of Design Dictatorship

Alex Cabal:

This cult is insidious. Its two main tenents are:

  • The designer is always right.
  • If you don’t like what the designer is doing, you’re wrong, and you should go somewhere else.

The Cult of Design Dictatorship is bad because it so easily appeals to every human’s ego, and it give bad designers an excuse to always be right. When bad designers are always right, bad design becomes par for the course.
