Designers can be the key decision-makers when it comes to sourcing printers and suppliers because our clients trust our recommendations. We also have a unique role in advocating that our clients’ materials be accessible to everyone and authentically represent diverse audiences. In this case study, we examine how those factors play a role in a sustainable election campaign.
