Loretta Staples on design

“A significant portion of the design profession proves, day-in and day-out, its inability to engage complex critical topics–an inability most clearly conveyed in the lack of self-critique that characterizes the very profession and all its official organs. Witness the homogeneous profusion of design magazines, conferences, professional organizations, and annual awards through which it publicizes and sustains itself (not to mention omni-present corporate sponsorship).”
