When I read the two articles, there were many similarities and very distinctive ones. It was important to understand that the designer’s thinking cannot actually be duplicated. Much has talked about the designer’s ability to balance technical, design and psychological aspects in the articles. Many conversations are based on the premise that design is a language. It’s about communicating ideas, brands, or problems to the world  and provide consumers with solutions to solve them. What also intrigued me was the idea of social responsibility. It mentions that its important to understand that what designers do have a lasting impact on society as a whole.
