August 2023 Newsletter
During the past few wretched/disruptive/inspiring years, it has become clear to all that effective, deliberate, transparent graphic design can be a force to advance positive social goals. Our annual health and wellness design competition has long embraced that belief – impactful graphic communications contribute to access and outcomes – and many of the good and great providers and vendors have been recognized for big projects and small. This competition remains open for entries through August 31; more information is below.
