'Work in Crisis / Work in Design'

Article, Writing

'Work in Crisis / Work in Design', an article commissioned for the catalogue 'DES/GN: Fbaul', a publication reflecting on the current status of the practise, published by the Communication Design department of the University of Lisbon.

The article focuses on the changes that Portugal’s job market as been faced with, post 2008 financial crash. What does it mean to work in design nowadays, particularly for the younger generations? What conditions are we faced with in an ever increasingly precarious profession and what alternatives to the status quo can one foresee and build together? The article explores and tries to find possible answers to these and other urgent questions.
