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

Yes, definitely. Graphic designers have a bigger impact than they think. They can amplify and empower others when it comes to protests, politics, or the pandemic. Designers are centered around connections and I think it is incredibly inspiring how many people have found new ways for their voices to be heard.
