👩🏽‍🎤 The term design, is always misleading

But most people who answer this survey identify themselves as industrial designer, fashion designer, game designer, textile designer, pattern designer, user experience designer, service designer, architect, business designer, manager for a design team, visual designer or content designers/UX copy and so on. So, it really doesn’t matter what you call yourself, as long as you are working with some kind of design and solving customer problems, all perspectives are welcome.
