Day of the designer - everything about this professional holiday
November 16 is a special date for many citizens of our country. In autumn, the Day of the designer is celebrated. Appeared this holiday not so long ago. It began to be celebrated only in 2005. Until that date, all of them remained completely undeservedly forgotten. Now, when they have their own day (albeit not designated at the state level), all members of this profession can relax, receive congratulations and be at the center of everyone's attention.
Whom we congratulate?
The essence of the holiday, which is officially called the "All-Russian Designer Day," is simple and understandable. On this day, they pay tribute to the representatives of a very important and necessary profession. The fact is that earlier they all considered it Builder's Day as their holiday. However, this is not entirely correct, because construction and design are two completely different areas. Thus, designers who perform important tasks on a daily basis work overtime and often without days off, remained completely unheeded.
Representatives of almost all professions, be they accountants, lawyers or cooks, have their own professional holiday. Fortunately in 2005 the government still decided to correct this unfortunate injustice and allocated the engineers of this specialization their own day - November 16. Let this wonderful holiday - the Day of the designer - and does not have a huge scope, but it gives all people the opportunity to remember their friends or relatives and pay tribute to them.
A little about the profession
To finally understand why the Day of the designer is so important and necessary, let's see what exactly representatives of this profession do. In fact, the profession is very ancient. People began to study its foundations as soon as they began to build, after all, before building any, even the simplest building, it must be carefully thought out and designed.
One of the most famous designers can be considered Leonardo da Vinci. Perhaps you will be surprised, because we know him as a talented artist. The fact is that in his time Leonardo was primarily an outstanding scientist, engineer, designer, and the second - an artist.
In Russia, a great impetus to the development of the profession was given by Peter I. He invited the best craftsmen from the West to our country to train his masters to design phenomenal buildings.
How to celebrate?
Alas, the All-Russian designer's day is not celebrated at the state level. However, in recent years, the celebration of this day is gaining increasing popularity and, accordingly, a large scale.
The first organized celebration was held in St. Petersburg in 2005. In that year there were only 150 representatives of the profession. But a year later this day was celebrated in three cities, and more than 600 people took part in it. Further more. In 2007, the tradition was picked up by 6 more cities in Russia, so more than 2 thousand professional designers were able to celebrate their day joyfully. So, from year to year, the Day of the designer got more and more fans. Now this holiday is celebrated in almost every city of the Russian Federation.
