Is Graphic Design art? Some might argue no, depending on how pressing their deadlines were, but sometimes as a designer, little things help highlight how we create things that end up a bit more than just fishwrap.
I was at a meeting at the Red Deer Museum this morning and spotted the newsletter we design each quarter for them. Each one was hung up on the wall, in order & grouped with other posters, collectables and “ART”. It’s nice to be a designer and make things. It’s nice to be able to feed my family. And sometimes it’s nice seeing something I’ve made—that was destined to be fishwrap—carefully hung up on a wall.
