Unanswered question

My friend Maggie asked me what is the difference between a designer and an artist and I found this description in a curriculum description from NC State.

"An artist-designer is a creative practitioner and image-maker who brings form to emotions and ideas. There is, however, a difference between a traditional artist and an artist-designer: the artist-designer's visual message does not have to be personal, as they work for another, giving form to expressions or ideas of their client. In short, the artist-designer is a visual translator.

I love that definition. Thanks, Maggie! Thanks for the shoutout from The ConCLAYve also! I will start making some templates next week. *g*
