The role of "graphic artist" has changed dramatically in the last 20 years. Specialized artisans have given way to skilled omni-taskers. The steady draw of an X-Acto blade has been replaced by whirring scrollwheels and plastic keyboards. For the design populace — it's important to maintain the sense of belonging to a community and keep our personal education as a daily ritual. More than just to stay relevant. To provide a contrast to our daily solutions and to stay away from the dreaded "rut".

As a designer, I delight in the education process. Even though our field has been consolidated from it's earlier days. Relying on one person to perform, a great many tasks. It's that change that allows us to be a part of so many mediums. Most recently the world wide web and it's subordinates in mobile media. Even though many industry pundits have virtually ignored the tactile world of print recently there have been many changes there as well.
