Because so many ask: what is design, or when am I a designer, perhaps we can list some of the authorities on the subject for reference?
Whether that is visual arts in general or coding in particular, there are some books, tutorials or courses even that set the standard for principles of good design.
Here are some I know, but I'm not sure it includes the standard work of reference -- if such a thing exists.
