a.) to highlight the growing demand for a course/education focused on graphic design in established schools/universities.
b.) to elevate the reliability and credibility of the profession as a profitable craft.
c.) to endorse local talents -- maximize the use of our own resources and promote patronage of local talents over their foreign competitors/counterparts among local businesses.
d.) to maintain and improve the status of the Philippines as a potential venue for graphic design education (in the same way that foreigners come to the Philippines to enroll in ESL schools and medical courses) and consequently widen the opportunities for tourism to flourish in all major cities of our country.
e.) to inspire and uplift the confidence of students who want to pursue a career in graphic design.
Visual is our way of making a mark in society. Our own way of letting the general public know that graphic design is important. And that the young & creative people who built this community, belong to the same circle of very important designers of this generation.
