On This Day: World Graphic Design Day

World Graphic Design DayOtherwise known as World Graphics Day, April 27th is the anniversary of the founding of Icograda (International Council of Graphic Design Associations).  The holiday serves to recognize professionals in graphic and communication design.  Where would we be without graphic design?  The world would be a pretty boring place and the advertising industry would be lost.
