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

For sure. Working with small businesses during this time has opened my mind to the value of good design. Many businesses have had to create an online presence for the first time, and in so doing, they realize that to be competitive they must have good quality design in all facets of their presence. As designers, we get to help others be successful in their ventures.
