“If you work in software or design in 2016, you also work in politics.” No one works in a vacuum anymore. We live in a world where a few big problems—ranging from mass income disparity to normalized bigotry to unstoppable misinformation—are so multifaceted that no single project can take them on. Like much of the public, many designers ignored these issues for a long time. And in the worst cases, they enabled such behaviors across digital platforms that connect the world in milliseconds, messing things up at a magnitude our forefathers could only have dreamed of. Be more mindful about how your work interrelates to the greatest problems in the world today.
a great little article to wave goodbye to 2016 with… happy christmas all, see you next year again x
