BIS on design 

Design is a constantly evolving field, with new trends and techniques emerging all the time. In recent years, there has been a shift towards minimalism and simplicity in design, with many designers opting for clean, uncluttered layouts and a focus on usability.

In addition, there has also been a focus on creating designs that are more inclusive and accessible. This includes the use of large, easy-to-read fonts and high-contrast color schemes, as well as the inclusion of alt text and other accessibility features for users with disabilities.

Overall, the world of design is constantly evolving, and it will be interesting to see how this will evolve. As a designer, it's important to stay up-to-date, challenge and grow by trying different techniques, to read about other peoples perspective and by pushing the boundaries of what's possible.
