Ethical values in contemporary design


The problem of the role and place of moral values in the activities of a modern designer is considered. It is noted that, along with the aesthetic, the ethical aspect of the designer’s work is of great importance, since it is this that allows building relationships in human-oriented professions. The concept of “professional ethics” is characterized and the current features of the designer’s professional ethics, reflected in the international code, are highlighted. In conclusion, the importance of a clear understanding and consolidation of ethical values within the design profession is substantiated.
