It’s the same everywhere…

Dont think for an instant that becuase you work for a corporate design office, or a smaller consultancy that things will be different. From my observation, the design industry as a whole is so young that in either environment the same issues persist. For an industry based around promoting consistency for usability, both environments lack it. From my recent discussions with friends in consultancy positions, it has become clear that all of us struggle to find internal design guidelines by which to make public documents.

This makes me questions how we, as designers can convincingly communicate to the world when we ourselves dont have a cohesive method of communicating between each other. I recently read a post on ixda.org discussing the changes in the profession and how designers change forums as the title by which we go by shifts. This goes along the same lines. As long as there is no standardization of what we do, it will be difficult to find it in our products. Still, we as a design community come up with great results to challenging design problems. I am curious though to see what else could be accomplished if designers didnt have to reinvent the wheel every time a spec document was built, every time a work flow had to be modeled.
