Designers have beautiful problems. Or, at least they're able to express their problems in a beautiful way. New York-based designer and educator Mitch Goldstein has designed a website titled "A Helpful Diagram," where he uses Venn diagrams to capture "the life, struggles and perspectives of a designer or design student."

"Designers give visual shape to ideas," Goldstein told Ligature. "Our favorite pieces of design are those where the designer inserts their opinion, personality, and interests into the work. We are attracted to design as form of personal expression, as well as a tool that serves communication."

Looking for some more designer-related fun? Be sure to check out this list of designer problems!
