Designing does not mean: “Make it pretty”

Designers across the globe must certainly groan in unison when somebody offers their thirteen-year-old-cousin up as the “designer” in the family; he has MS Paint after all!  Just give him a 2-liter of Pepsi and a pizza, and all of your “Design” needs are taken care of!  Or, if it’s not someone’s cousin, then at the very least it is some logo/graphic factory from across the seas willing to ship any generic image with some customized text.

This seems to be the onus of my Graphic Design brethren as of late.  Fortunately for Architecture, there are no programs (that I can think of) that generate an instant building foundations, frame, and all in the real world.
