CGTrader launches a competition for bloggers interested in design

Watching the concept of design evolve is like a great movie. Once there was a time when people even had a real definition for it: for example, Oxford English dictionary defines design as “a plan or drawing produced to show the look and function or workings of a building, garment, or other object before it is made”. But does it really capture the complexity and variety of contexts the term is used in? 3D, interior, fashion, graphics, web, industrial, product, urban… all these words can be (and are, often!) followed by the term design. It actually seems there are only two things clear about it. The first - it encompasses sort of creativity in solution. The other - the area is evolving rapidly in both scope and depth that it is nearly impossible to track where design is going in various areas and how these diverse fields relate.
