Greetings Everyone,

Please Help! I found this on a blog or general disscussion board in this website and would very much like to use it in my paper i am working on for schoool, but i can't seem to find the author. if this looks like your writing, would you mind if i quoted you in my paper. it works perfectly for "what not to do" (ethically) in design, it is a great example. i would like to give credit in my paper to the person who wrote it.

"Designers can play a huge role in society; most don't. Those designing for products that have a massive impact on the lives of people around the world, or those who get into the world of politics—which they often don't now, as the 24-hour news cycle has wiped out the time needed to work good design into politics—have to be careful about the ethical lines they might be crossing; I believe that most designers are doing quite well when it comes to ethical decision making. I think that this is in large part due to the glaring examples of what happens when designers go bad that we have left over from the twentieth century: all the great designers who worked tirelessly designing propaganda for the Nazi and Communist parties which then committed unconscionable acts against humanity that overshadow all other great evils of history."

Thanks tons,

Next time, a post on General Discussions would give a better exposure to your request.
