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...
In a post that seems to be designed to convince us that we are in the midst of a “post-digital” revolution, The Post’s business section has an article titled “The art of digital design”.
This piece of propaganda is meant to convince the masses that digital design is dead, and the art of graphic design is alive and kicking again.
I’m not here to say that there isn’t a market for graphic design (as a profession), but it seems that this particular piece of marketing from the Post is so well-placed that it seems to have managed to find a place in the online marketing landscape.
There are many good reasons why graphic design should be on the chopping block, but one of the biggest problems is that we as a community, are so focused on how we should design our products and services.
The Post piece is a great example of how this is happening.
It’s not that the graphic designers of the world don’t love their work.
It’s just that it’s too expensive.
The Post’s graphic design article is a clear example of the type of marketing the Post can pull in the wake of its disastrous digital strategy.
The article is littered with examples of how the Post’s digital team is using a series of “digital tricks” to trick the community into thinking the graphic designs are dead.
The article makes a lot of claims about how people are embracing digital design, but in reality it’s just a way to convince people that the artform is alive.
While the Post doesn’t actually say that it is killing the art form, the idea is clear: the post is trying to convince you that digital is dead.
In addition to the misleading language, the article claims that people are abandoning digital design because of “the digital revolution”.
I think the article makes this clear enough.
This post is a blatant example of a marketing campaign by a media company, which is trying hard to sell its products to people.
But it is also a clear indication of the problems in the industry.
The artform has a long and rich history.
The earliest examples of graphic designs were created by graphic designers and artists, like William Gasset and David Smith.
These artists were not simply copycats copying their predecessors.
These early examples of the art style were not created with the goal of selling a specific product.
They were creations meant to tell a story about what was possible with the technology.
Digital design is an exciting and complex medium, and there is so much to explore in order to bring the art into our digital lives.
But, like all artforms, we need to learn from history and learn to appreciate our past.
The graphic design industry has a lot to learn and improve from.
The future is bright, and we need our media companies to start thinking about the future as well.
