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

I’ve always believed that graphic design has the ability to elevate great work from a pretty design to an impactful work of art that’s going to stay with the viewer. The challenges of 2020 have reinforced this belief. Graphic design has the potential to make your work clearer and more concise —allowing room for the design to stand on its own.
