Design has always been, at least in the visual sense, a means of communicating information without the use of spoken words. From the hieroglyphics and cave drawings of ancient times, all the way to today’s prevalent use of emojis, design continues to be a silent driving force in our day-to-day lives. Thanks to technology and social media, now – more than ever – we’re engaging with large amounts of content that stem from the initial creation and graphic design process.
