What is the role of graphic design? This happens frequently with me, and for a few days, I have been thinking about my professional career as a graphic designer (which is not the most extensive, but it is already something considerable) and everything that got me here. And wandering in those thoughts, of course I always knew what made me have such professional choices (this is the theme for another article), but I kept wondering about how I contribute / can contribute, in some way, to people, with the evolution of local scene and even the world with my work as a graphic designer.
Summing up this big question, I was actually thinking: What is graphic design really for?
It seems like an unusual question for a professional in the field since 2013, but of course I wasn't looking for answers of my own, such as: creating graphic and web materials, editorial and visual identity projects, or the like. I was looking for something beyond, conclusions "bigger" than these, so shallow and banal.
I decided to sit down to reflect and ended up writing down some topics that will be listed below.
