A graphic design student conference, which was hosted by the Student Design Agency at Princeton University, was held earlier this month. The event, which was called Reach: Design Across the Social Spectrum, challenged why certain designs are based on their desired audience's socioeconomic status, according to the Princetonian.

Rose Nguyen, the Student Design Agency's co-executive manager, illustrated to the news source that "highly respected design campaigns and projects are for products or services geared toward privileged populations, and we wanted to ask ourselves why this might be."

The fourth annual conference included seven speakers who are professionals in the field, who presented in front of more than 100 people about what their work entailed. The individuals who attended were students from Princeton, Rhode Island School of Design and the Pratt Institute, the news source reported.

Graphic designers find the most visually appealing and direct way to get a message across to their viewers or audience. These professionals may work for a newspaper, magazine or corporations and they also might freelance for several different companies, according to U.S. Bureau of U.S. Labor Statistics.
