To Those Who Design

Description/Abstract

Artist Statement

To Those Who Design is a student-led magazine designed for students by students. The magazine showcases eleven student designs, ranging from freshman to seniors. This magazine came about as a response to a design project to “design something the world needs.” In answer to this question, I thought about what and who I interact with the most. And as a design student, I interact the most with other design students. Although my response to this question isn’t profound, moreover, it is not overly ambitious or lofty; graphic design is, however, something that resonates deeply with me. And I genuinely believe that every student, no matter what stage of design, has value in what they are creating. Taking inspiration from designers like David Carson, Michael Bierut, and old letterpress booklets, I created the first issue of To Those Who Design. I combined the student-provided designs and the graphics I made to complete the pages of the magazine. Overall, the magazine was well received by those who viewed it, either online or with a physical copy.
