    I think Ratatouille said it best: "I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto: "Anyone can cook." But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere."

    So, no. Not everyone's cut out to be a designer. There are some people who simply do not have an eye for it. You can improve your eye for good or bad design, but not everyone can improve it enough to be a successful designer.

      Really liked the Ratatouille reference and I also think that it applies to this situation.

      Regarding the second statement - how can you improve your eye for good or bad design? I would think that that particular skill was the one that meant you were cut out to be a designer.

        You can only get better at anything by actually doing it.

        Practice. Expose yourself to design work that others like. Collect examples of design you like. Eventually your brain can learn from a wide enough sample. Its improvable for anyone, but if you have an eye to begin with, you'll go a lot further because its easier.
