A couple of weeks ago, I attended a talk about "design thinking": practice and paradox. One of the moderators complained (and made assumptions) about younger artists not being versed in classical techniques (i.e for fillmmakers it would be splicing actual film together or using a bolex as a oppose to using premiere to edit or using a digital camera).
The moderator hated how "bad" design has become. My eyes rolled in the back of my head so hard.
I agree, there is too much noise - there's mediocrity in all disciplines. However, the democratization of technology has allowed those previously without access to traditional ways of producing art, a way of creating outside of their disciplines.
Process is important, but so is performance and intent.
