Ages ago we agreed to widen our scope (1, 2) to graphics and design in the broadest sense, including drawing, art techniques, typography, traditional tools, general design principles, etc.
Maybe this is a good opportunity to make it crystal clear that we don't just do pixel-pushing:
- Q&A for design, artworking and typography
- Q&A for design, illustration and typography
- Q&A for creative design and artworking
- Q&A for the graphic arts including design, illustration and typography
I don't think we need to specify professional or amateur as I don't think we have the same level of cultural schism between amateurs and pros that, say, the photography world has. They need something that gets across the idea "We aim at professionals but please don't sneer at the amateurs, they're welcome too" because many pro photographers really go out of their way to distance themselves from amateurs and might assume that a site with pros was pro-only.
I don't think we need that, and it should be pretty obvious from the content that we don't roast beginners or dabblers. I think it's enough to say what we're about rather than who we're for.
Though we could always stick "...professionals and beginners" on any of the above e.g. "Q&A for design, illustration and typography professionals and beginners".
Also ideally we should be tell people something about our scope that they don't already know from the site name.
