As the design landscape expands, various issues regarding an integrative perspective of design are actively being discussed. This study aims to provide a comprehensive discussion about integrated perspective in design. Through a literature review, we derived design issues reflecting an integrated viewpoint, then conducted in-depth interviews to determine current discussions in design education and practice, exploring the different aspects highlighted between interviewees. As a result, various empirical insights were discussed, such as different perspectives between design education and design practice regarding designers’ competency, design processes, and goals. By comprehensively discussing design issues, both theoretically and empirically, the study contributes to understanding the perspectives of design academia, practice, and education surrounding integrated perspective in design.
