On 27 April 2010, using the power of social media, complete the sentence: "I value design because..."
World Graphics Day has been celebrated annually on 27 April since 1995 as an occasion for designers to reflect and hope that Icograda's global network can contribute to greater understanding between people and help build bridges where divides and inequities exist.
