Is Technology the Killer of Creativity?

Graphic design hasn’t always been technology based, some early forms of graphic design were done by hand. Since the rise of technology within our discipline some have questioned if it has hindered our ability to think creatively without relying solely on the computer as an aid. New tools and updates within design programs makes designing easier and faster. Some believe that this is the cause of designers depending on tools to help design instead of using personal creativity and problem solving abilities to achieve goals. Instead of using twenty different filters or new distort effects from new updates and patches for example others believe we should try to set our design apart through the use of creativity. I personally love technology and feel differently; I think technology is good for graphic design and love that it is always getting better. I feel that new tools will only enhance our creative ability as designers.
