The graphic design industry is efficiently connected through platforms in new media. This connectivity perpetuates a dense community of sharing, critique and discourse that actively defines the contemporary graphic design zeitgeist. With the connectivity that the internet provides, discussions have become seemingly democratic, giving all participants a voice. However, new network systems that facilitate inequality have begun to grow in popularity. These networks decrease the democracy that the internet was built upon, reducing the voice of the graphic design community to a select few. By engaging with graphic design discourse on-line, the field can move from monologue to dialogue as it evolves in practice.
