Dear Designer: The Road Back (Mike Monteiro)
We were given the responsibility to use our labor and our expertise to make the world a better place, and we failed. We have, in fact, made it worse.
Yes, design is political. Because design is labor, and your labor is political. Where you choose to expend your labor is a political act. Whom you choose to expend it for is a political act. Whom we omit from those solutions is a political act. Finally, how we choose to leverage our collective power is the biggest political act we can take.
