“Few people think about it or are aware of it. But there is nothing made by human beings that does not involve a design decision somewhere.”

It's funny, the other day we had a guy come and talk to us at school. He is actually the creator of Positive Posters and Sex, Drugs & Helvetica. Anyway, he as talking about how Graphic Designers are so undervalued. And it's so true. Look around the screen right now.... A Graphic Designer designed this. Now minimise and have a look at all your other programs. This was also part of a Graphic Designers job along with a code designer of some description. Now that magazine sitting on your desk, that was a Graphic Designer too. and the list goes on, advertising, print, screen and physical mediums are all outlet's that Graphic Designers create and design for along with many others. See above! Yet when you tall someone that you're studying to become a Graphic Designer there are people who almost scoff.... "so you draw stuff?".
Darling, that's not even the half of it.
