Cad is a tool....The creative person with the education and many years of experience is the "Designer" In my office I cant do all the cad work. Having my Cad operators draft my conceptual sketched does not make them the designer... Having said that many times the Cad operators will take the next step in evolution of the concept and make suggestions... It is many times the back and forth that makes a great design.

To Martin Architect: Without a doubt an accredited architect designs. My comments were directed to the interior decorators who claim to design.
