Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object, system or measurable human interaction.
Designing often necessitates considering the aesthetic, functional, economic, and sociopolitical dimensions of both the design object and design process.
Thus design may be a substantive referring to a categorical abstraction of a created thing or things, or a verb for the process of creation.
With such a broad denotation, there is no universal language or unifying institution for designers of all disciplines, which allows for many philosophies.
The person designing is called a designer, which is also a term used for people who work professionally in one of the various design areas.
Substantial disagreement exists concerning how designers in many fields, whether amateur or professional, alone or in teams, produce designs.
