"If we want clients, government and society to understand the value of what professional designers do then we need to ensure that designers themselves understand what they do and that they are able to articulate it coherently. To do so they need a professional vocabulary and framework that harmonises with other professionals to reinforce their particular skill sets and value in whatever context or wherever they practice."
