A designer should do more than create gorgeous product images; he should seek a strong understanding of all the processes required to make it a reality, and to work harmoniously with any internal mechanisms, the external environment, and the user. These factors should not be allowed to constrain the creative inspiration: instead, creative inspiration should be used to stretch the boundaries of internal and external influences and processes, so good design may come to fruition.
