Post Truth Design: Part 2

with Gabriel Stromberg of Civilization

February 5, 2019


We are all living in the Post Truth Era, whether we choose to believe it or not. Once upon a time, we all experienced the world accepting basic, fundamental truths, but, as of late, that’s just no longer the case. Basic concepts, like science, are being called into question, and when that happens, everything goes out the window. Nowhere is this more evident than in graphic design: ground zero for the battle between fiction and fact. Gabriel Stromberg, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Civilization, a design practice here in Seattle, helps us with our cognitive dissonance, understanding how powerful design can be, but also, ruining smoothies in the process.
