Design is everywhere, and in everything. As the 2023 senior class of the Drexel Graphic Design program, we know this to be an indisputable fact. We understand that design has the power to shift thinking, embrace new ideas, and reflect innovative forms of communication. Our differences in personalities, diverse backgrounds, and distinct styles have only strengthened our bond as students and designers.

Our road to graduation has not been an ordinary one. Despite beginning our journey together and forming meaningful connections, the pandemic resulted in an era of separation, endless zoom meetings, and little time to collaborate with others. Now, as seniors, we have fully reunited and have used the remaining months of school to reconnect with old friends and discover new ones (and design, of course). From here, we are left to ponder the idea of what comes next.

But, this is not the end. For whatever our professions may be, wherever we go and whichever paths we take, the bonds we formed and the creativity we share will transcend beyond zoom screens and timezones. This is our promise to ourselves, and to the rest of the senior class.

Uniquely, 2023
