We’ve all seen it. That perfect composition of copy and image, the right colours and clear concept. That rare type of graphic design that we let stream through our eyes to move our heart and energize our brain. Great work is eye-catching, straightforward, and memorable. It provides the tone and emotional character that connects humans to their culture. With so much visual garbage and hyper stimulation, we need it now more than ever. When we see something lovely,  it pops and stands out from the common, pulling us in, making us stare, we want to keep it, buy it, join it, love it, remember it, and share it. Graphic design is going nowhere, despite the influence of technology, it is the foundation.
