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

This year has been a time for reflection. It’s transformed me and challenged my perceptions of how I can make an impact as a graphic designer. The year helped to affirm my purpose and belief in design’s abilities to ignite change.
