Signs, Signs

Portrayed vividly by every image coming out of Saturday's women's marches, there is an opportunity to address the tremendous value of all voices protesting for positive change in public and private sectors. We've demonstrated the positive impact that peaceful, yet insistent citizens have when we are actively involved in finance, healthcare, technology, government, voting, cities, education, and yes, design. The explosion of hand made posters, signs, pink hats, and broadly smiling faces reminds us that protest is visual, advocacy is a physical act, not just a social media opportunity, and that showing up always makes an impact. — Ann Willoughby, Willoughby Design.
