|Do you believe the newer generations are better at designing?
It depends on how one defines better. We believe good design stands the test of time, so it is hard to say that the new generations do something better. We certainly respect all good design regardless of what era it was produced in!
Yes and no.
No they are just different.
I don't believe that you can say either generation in better than the other, as without the artists and designers of the past we would not be where we are today. The younger generation has the added luxury of hindsight as they can see what has been done and what has worked and what hasn't. I will agree that the younger generation of designers are much more up to date withh the technological side of modern design, which can speed up the time taken on certain jobs. However computers should be used as a tool to aid design not the be all and end all. 'Computers are to design as microwaves are to cooking' - Milton Glaser. Without one we cannot have the other.

I don't think that they are better, I think that they bring a new enthusiasm that always brings vitality to the trade.
No, they're just different—and we owe much to the generations who came before us. You have to view each designer's work in the era in which they lived. Imagine what Jan Tschichold would do with todays tools and the decades of type history that have followed his writing "Die Neue Typographie"!
Where newer generations of designers are typically ahead of older generations of designers is in grasping the interactive medium, for the obvious reasons. But that's more about knowledge of the medium than design skill. Many interactive designers have no idea how to pre-press a job for print, so I'll call that one equal!
No, this isn't true but I would say that newer generations have newer technology which is constantly making it easier for people to generate graphics, but is this a good thing...
why not? I do believe based on the current development of technology, everyone can be a designer as they have more advance mindset than we do in two years time, the advancement of technology had brought a new media for designers to create things. However, I didn't say that old designers are not good, for me, the best designers lived in the past, people like Saul Bass, Stefan Sagmeister, Massimo Vignelli, and even the old Milton Glaser had never stopped to surprise us, young designers. My point is, the concept of 'design' as a way of thinking now had changed from a thinking to an execution, in that way, technology had brought us a negative effect where everything is measured by software capabilities and ability to use it.
Definitely. New talent is always fresh and exciting to me. I love seeing new perspectives and emerging designers straight out of college. Older generation designers tend to get comfortable and stick to what they know or what they were good at.
No i do not believe so , ever thing before my time and even before that was all done by hand and was all original they put the image for the new generations , the new generations have made some better designs but you still have to give it to the original creators
Not necessarily. I know some really great old-fashioned designers.
They are more used with good design, but it doesn't mean they do better design.
I can't imagine they'll be any better in terms of generating the idea but maybe better on how the idea could be applied.
