    I totally agree with you.

    It seems to me that UI designers like to call themselves just "designers" and assume that every "designer" specializes in UI design unless stated otherwise. I mean, just look at the name of this very website for instance. Try finding anything here related to fashion design, motion graphics, and information architecture (the analog, not digital kind).

    Edit: I'm didn't intend to single the OP out, but rather comment about the state of things in general.

      This forums DesignerNews is targeted to designers in various different fields but in digital fashion. It's very rare for me to find articles that are related to analog design right here on DN.

      Maybe there's other community? I'm sure there's some for fashion design, home decoration (I consider that design because you need to choose color palettes and materials that combine well), etc.

      Isn't motion design digital? It's created with software like After Effects or something much more simple. There's also processing motion design created in programming.

        I totally understand the userbase of this website and I personally have little interest in the design fields I mentioned. It's just that I get the general impression that there are many UI designers whom use the "design" word a bit too liberally to refer to what should be "UI design."
