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]
SO STOP UNDER-FUCKING-PAYING US

With love & frustration
