Emelie and I speak often about the fact that so much of the graphic design that we’re exposed to in our mainstream media is from the US and Europe. It seems like we see the same trends over and over again, and it gets pretty samey-samey. From where we are, graphic design from around the world is not very accessible. We know that people are creating amazing things out there, in all corners of the globe—wouldn't it be nice to see more of that for a change?In an age of globalisation, we want to offer a broader perspective, interest, and appreciation of different cultures and voices. Our Instagram page, @ThatDesignerOverThere features graphic designers who are not from the US or Europe. We are introduced to their work, their workspaces, their challenges, what inspires them and what they are optimistic about.
Please do have a look and follow us. And we are always looking for designers to add their voices to this project.
