Some western countries have put forward to the "people foremost" design concept at the end of the 1960s. This is a significant leap in thinking in the history of the design. However, complexity and uncertainty of the "human" factor of the "people foremost" design concept determine the relativity and limitation of its ideological foundation for the design.

This is also the social responsibility and historical mission of designers.
