"27 April, Icograda's anniversary, was designated World Graphics Day in 1995. It is an opportunity to recognise communication design and its role in the world.
Design shapes our world in every way, affecting our understandings, opinions, actions and decisions. Design determines the impact of information, whether it be through colour, form, or type, including the smallest street sign, the websites we browse, the products we purchase, or the books we read." - ico-d.org

We at Direction want to celebrate how design impacts our lives from the packaging that helps you identify ingredients and nutritional information in your food, the signage that guides you on your way to work or even the conundrum created when trying to choose which mustache t-shirt to buy!
Hoping everyone can spend 5 seconds thinking about how much design effects their lives on a daily basis!
Cheers to all the graphic artists out there working hard!
