01 Apr Member Spotlight: Design is Professional
The theme for this year’s World Design Day, April 27, is “Design is Professional”, so we interviewed a number of our Guild members on what it is to be a professional, and what role ethics play in design.
We asked each to share some samples of their favorite work and answer these three questions:
- What traits do you think a professional in the graphic art industry must have and why?
- What is ethics in graphics arts? Do you think ethical responsibilities fall on the shoulders of the artist, the client/company stakeholder or both?
- Have you ever used your work as a tool for advocacy or to bring awareness to a specific topic negatively impacting society? If yes or no, please expound.
