When it comes to the design profession, there's a long and complicated history of "trendy" and "disruptive" design.But a new survey of more than 1,000 designers has found that a lot of the current focus on the latter is actually misguided, and the former is the wrong direction."It's easy to think about design as something that only needs to be used in the context of your brand," says Jason Luscomb...
A computer graphic artist has been awarded $2 million in damages from his ex-girlfriend after she accused him of rape.
A judge has set the amount at $1 million, but a jury will decide the award next month.
The lawsuit, filed by attorney Christopher Fuchs in January, accused Michael Czerniak of raping her in 2011 and claiming he gave her pills before raping her.
She told police that he then held her down and raped her again.
The victim, who was a graduate student in graphic design at the time, said she was “overwhelmed” and “embarrassed” by the alleged crime.
She also alleged that she was raped twice by Czerrik and that she thought he was a friend.
The woman, who is a graphic designer in California, sued Czervik in September 2016 for wrongful termination.
In a statement to FoxNews.com, a lawyer for Czederik said, “The claims in this case are false, unfounded and without merit.”
A representative for the woman did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
A source familiar with the case told Fox News that the graphic design award comes as a result of a “consensual sexual relationship” and not because the woman was raped.
The case was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and was not connected to the ongoing probe into sexual misconduct allegations against the Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein, the source said.
