Graphic Design Degree Project. I wrote an essay and made a website to contain it.
The writing explores ideas of realness, nature, and default systems in the context of graphic design, and how recent shifts in the way these ideas are symbolized and marketed indicate a greater cultural movement away from something called "authenticity".
The essay also proposes a new post-authentic approach to graphic design discourse which acknowledges its own function as commodity service, rather than an inherently virtuous, innnocent or apolitical craft. Visit the site!
Written, designed and programmed in the Spring of 2020.
