Design / Capitalism / Minimalism

How these don’t cooperate, but they’re finna

Why? Because that’s not how capitalism worked in the past. Let’s just for a moment blame it on the lack of technology. Sure, product design in the past could only function in X or Y capacities, but we’ve advanced so far. Look at the iPhone, holy fuck. What are calculator sales like?


So take that — and apply it to everything.

Look at the demands of our workforce. Job postings say that *you* (highly skilled worker and also you look great today!) need to know and do way more to be qualified for certain positions. In a few years, we’re about to minimalize our employment rates [laugh/tear emoji].

So if us hoomans are expected to do more, why aren’t we demanding our non-digital products do the same?

[enter how design is going to save the world]

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
