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

Definitely. Design is a vital communication tool. I have seen it help explain social distancing rules and visually display information for the public during these uncertain times. I also think designers have assisted small businesses create their brand identity to boost sales and profits.
