I appreciate the idea of design in that we utilize our skills to create a visual piece for a cause to make the community aware of this intention. Under a certain light, as designers, we hold a power to influence others in how they should view and value something. It can become rather demanding, and thus in particular cases, we have to leave our own perceptions behind and focus on the audience.
I especially take a great interest in photography. The idea of capturing an image of time in a frame is…. surreal! We see things/events every day, yet once we capture it, the event changes what is happening and makes us think of it differently: that it must convey something – what is it telling us?….
If there was to be one cause that I am strongly with, it is the idea of unity. That no matter backgrounds, culture or lifestyle, there is no reason why we as humans can’t get along and accept each other’s differences. There will always be conflict in the world, no matter the scale, yet sometimes these battles are truly over nothing but personal hate or they fight because they just want to. I know it’s an ideal, and reality is the opposite. Nonetheless; why not?
