Our world-view is generated by algorithms. Data is ever-present and all around us. More than ever we need people who are openminded and are critical about the information that is presented to them on a silver platter.

Graphic designers create order out of chaos, give insight in complicated matters and have the power to create an emotional response. They visualize urgent topics so everyone can understand them in the blink of an eye!
