    I’m concerned that the methods we’re publishing in all of our well designed card decks are making our profession appear stupid, and doing a disservice to the people using the cards.

    Yep. It's important to recognize how many of these things are essentially just marketing campaigns on behalf of individuals and businesses. Can talented designers do good work using their ideas as a framework? Sure. Talented designers can do good work many different ways. But the gift isn't in the process. It doesn't help anyone to pretend otherwise.

    And it certainly doesn't make anyone other than designers take design more seriously.
