The Importance of Aesthetic Self-Expression in Graphic Design
Based on the premise of art therapy, individuals experiencing existential crises associated with stress from jobs and societal expectations can regain a sense of purpose and control. This control comes from accepting the subjective nature aesthetics. As graphic designers, our role to play in this matter is by experiencing different techniques of self-expressive healing and inspiring others to partake in these methods. The idea is to pursue topics and create visuals based on the interests of the individual, not society. By embracing aesthetic self-expression, individuals may regain a sense of hope, happiness, and purpose in life.
