Communication is key— at least that’s what any good relationship expert would tell you. Thankfully, technology is advancing at a rate greater than ever before, making it easier to communicate our ideas on a global scale. Architects and designers play an ever-increasing role in this world, developing interactive platforms that allow us to express ourselves, while also creating the structures that house the world’s data.
Of course, good communication is not always based in technology. A simple, but recognizable campaign advertised on your local street corner can have the same impact as a meticulously intricate, computer-oriented project. It has been proved time and again, whether based in real time or streaming through the pipelines of the net, our success and failures as a culture of people are closely linked to our ability to communicate.
