Earlier this year I completed my masters in Design Studies from Parsons The New School of Design. Once I left school, I quickly found a position working in digital media. I was content in my new role until the shock of the presidential election hit, and like everyone else, I found myself questioning everything. Chief among them was what do we do now? Coming from a university that challenges its students to fight against the belief that the way the world works is the way the world must be, I found myself wondering how we ought to redesign our systems in order to move forward.
