"Side note, I hate the term "designer" anyway, because in today's society it goes thrown around a lot. It could be the guy at home depot that helps me pick out cabinets or a licensed interior designer. Everyone now is a designer of some type, could be of a porno page for all I know."
Thanks for a little levity on a Wednesday morning. We have the same issues, everyone appends the label "designer" to their title, often as a means of skirting registration laws. We get Architectural Designers advertising what are essentially architectural services but they can not claim to be an Architect. In most cases these "designers" are actually demeaning the profession.
But the one I really dis-like is when "Engineer" is used and abused. Unfortunately the title Engineer is not protected, only Registered Engineer or Professional Engineer is protected. I can't tell you how many job sites have a PE (Project Engineer) whose knowledge of engineering ranks right up there with the bathroom attendant. But it sure sounds impressive to an uneducated public. You can pretty much call yourself an Engineer in virtually anything.
