Thank your friendly neighborhood designer, please

I’m sure you’ve all seen those Buzzfeed articles and reddit pages about bad designs, and laughed about those silly mistakes. But these articles bring to light the issue of how important graphic designers are these days. Without designers, we’re left with words spaced in not-so-appropriate ways and magazine layouts that implicate the Queen as a witch.

Graphic designers play an important role in our society, a role that is often overlooked. You guys create things that people look at every day, from movie posters to cereal boxes, and from coffee cups to apps for logos. As someone who is not a designer, I appreciate all the work that is put into creating these things. Without you, we’d all be left to fend for ourselves, and well, you’ve seen the atrocities that occur when that happens, haven’t you?

    We just had a discussion in class about quality design being taken for granted. Thanks for sharing!

    I agreed, some people thought that designing is easy, and it’s honestly frustrated me sometimes. Graphic designers make everything look better, cohesive, and effective.
