We have recently been set our second essay writing project of this year and have a choice of two similar questions to answer,

“To what extent do digital technologies influence the production and reception of Graphic Design?”


“To what extent does the historical context in which a Graphic Designer is working, inform his or her practice”.

I would say both of these questions has a large scope to work on and a lot of areas/paths to go down in order to gather research.

I have decided to write my essay on the second question as it is more relevant to my studies, work and I also feel there is a great amount of research I can do and choices I can make.
