What is not significant is coders deciding that good design can be defined by a bunch of scripts.
@Leosghost being an artist doesn't make one creative.
Only because the term artist, is bandied about so lightly, it has become debased, everyone claims to be one..
If you are blessed with creativity then you may be lucky or you may be cursed because real creativity is not something that surfaces only when summoned.
Agreed :) but as it is always there , "summoning" is not needed..
Regarding my comment about its relationship to culture, school teachers catering for multinationals can tell you which ones are least likely to be imaginative.
Agreed :) however there are many teachers who cannot do, therefore they teach, it is a way to hide from the lack of talent in oneself, it is however respectable if done to pay the bills and buy the materials..but should always be considered a temporary sentence..
Otherwise most artists, like any other artisans,
You confuse artisans and artists..an artist creates,( using head , hands, and heart ) an artisan makes..using head and hands only..sometimes only hands..
rely on their training, past experience and the work of others.
You can't train talent into someone , only show techniques, that may, or may not, be useful.. we are all influenced by our past experiences, life and art could not be otherwise..the works of others merely show what others have done, not what you should do..
it takes a trained eye to spot the difference sometimes.
So those who would have you pay them, to train you, would have you believe..training is not required..and is even to be avoided, amongst other reasons, so as to avoid mimicry..
The things that influence the reactions of people to colour, light, space , form , design ( even of webpages ;-) would surprise, shock and in some cases maybe horrify people if they knew why they react the ways in which they do..;-))
