Beware of Images

Here’s a little link to a blog that is an inspiration for me about the social responsibility (I think) designers have. We are being given tools that are marketable, but graphic design skills are much more than that. We are honing our skills to speak the language of mass media, the tongue of international campaigns, the dialect that is used to bombard people with information.

How will your work shape the way people see the world? How will it shape the way people see themselves? Do you have a responsibility?

Here’s an example:

And of course, there’s a facebook page, with tons more of illustrations and amazing pictures, but i’ll let that be a little treasure for whoever is interested in learning more.
