AA: I believe that we, designers are one of the most responsible groups towards soceity since we can pervert the people's culture or elevate it by our designs. We are always connected to people, and make them Hopeful or desperate, joyful or depressed, healthy or sick, and all of these are somehow outcomes of our designs

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
AA: Design is also evolving like other professions and what is concerning about it is the presence of designers who are aware of needs of society
