I remember when taking my graphic design history courses, social change through art was a common discussion. A lot of us came to the common conclusion that we were all pursuing a similar goal – to make change and improvement in our world through art and design. I think those that get to make this kind of work, and make it well, are really fortunate people. As people of a trained and honed set of skills intertwined with our talents, we should make works that make a difference – that wake us up when we are asleep or numb to the ills and wrong-doings around us. Seeing work like this reminds me of things I really want to do and one of the reasons why I am in this profession.

Hi innov8ional- I feel honored that this post reminded you of reasons you went into design– thanks so much for sharing!
So true that being able to make the world a better place with art is an amazing privilege. Art makes us see things that we are otherwise too scared or stubborn to look at.
Thanks for stopping by!
