Design Agency Memes Only Graphic Designers Will Understand

Graphic design is the unsung hero of an design agency. It isn’t just a ‘job’, it’s a mixture of hard work, dedication and lots of talent, which is matched by the power of the ‘artistic temperament’, so makes for one exciting day – every day! Graphic design is one of those things that bubbles under the conscious surface of marketing, but is very much at the heart of it.
