April 2022 Newsletter
In Monotype’s Type Trends report Charles Nix describes 2022 as a “thrilling and vital time” for the creative community “to chart a path forward into our technological future, and to remind ourselves, at every turn of our humanity.” As spring finally arrives, it is strikingly clear that it is “humanity” more than technology that is on designers’ minds. Our most popular stories deal not with the future of the metaverse and the like, but with the world as it is and how to mediate it. From raising money for Ukraine, to supporting foodbanks and promoting greener cities, to revolutionizing mundane acts like grocery shopping, it is exciting to watch graphic designers influence the here and the now. Happy Spring.
