Specialties have been formalized in some areas (medicine and law come to mind) but in many design areas the nature of one person's contribution has a lot to do with that one person's skill set. Is a graphic designer also an information designer (or vice versa)? Is she also an illustrator? An interface designer? An information architect? Is the information architect an interface designer? It depend on the people and the project.

If anyone knows who originated one of my favorite quotes, let me know. I'd love to be able to give credit--

Please let me be the center of the org chart.
