HAVE THE CHALLENGES OF 2020 CHANGED HOW YOU THINK ABOUT GRAPHIC DESIGN AND DESIGNERS?

2020 has made me more aware of how my work is communicated and perceived. This time in history has enhanced my focus on themes in my life related to identity, politics, and the environment. Graphic designers process the visuals that people consume, and it’s our responsibility to produce work conducive to the changing world around us.
