The Myth of the Irrelevant Lighting Designer

July 31, 2017 in Lighting Profession

Kevin Willmorth has a long and interesting article on his blog in which he argues for the recognition of professional lighting designers and what a professional lighting designer is and is not.  The post echoes Chapter 1 of Designing With Light, and many of the things I’ve written here, including promoting the lighting design profession, the value of professional lighting design, the need for projects to use a professional lighting designer (here, here and here),  those other than professional lighting designers making design decisions, and poor documentation of LED products by manufacturers, among other topics.  I don’t have much to add to Kevin’s post, except to say that it’s well worth reading.
