I am writing about Mac training versus design experience (Letters, DW 26 November).
My experience with students over ten years has been that those who use the computer to solve problems end up with bland conceptions. But those who revert to drawing, sketching and using analysis are using the hard disk called the brain.
Perhaps to start the new millennium the words of a great designer, Herbert Bayer, should be the criteria for a new turn in creativity… “the creative process is not performed by skilled hand alone or by the intellect alone, but must be a unified process in which head, hand and heart play a simultaneous role.”
