-Has the idea of getting/ receiving things instantly brought a negative effect on society? Have we lost our patience because of all this fast paced media/ technology?
I feel that people are loosing more and more patience with the world and I think some of the fast pace of technology has caused that. Everyone has become accustom to the instant feedback that technology gives us. Things keep moving at a fast pace and people are having a hard time catching up. I think another part of it is that people are loosing more face time with actual people. Technology depended individuals are loosing people skills and want that instant safe feedback that technology gives us. It’s impact not only how we communicate but trickles down into other parts of our lives, like how we go about finding a job.
- How will graphic design change down the road because of this technology dependence that we seem to be heading toward?
I think we will see the continuing trend of advertisement going viral. I is the easiest way to reach a large amount of the population. Once it does become viral the design work is passed around by word of mouth. Companies seem to be focusing on this type of work because it costs less then putting out several billboards or posters that just start to blend in with all the others out there. The viral video or campaign seems to stick out in consumers minds because it is passed on by just posting a link or through a conversation. Companies can focus on quality instead of quantity since they are not so worried about try to get a large amount of posters on the street so they can try to get as much exposure as possible.
