November 2020 was arguably the most critical election many of us will see in our lifetimes. 2020—the year of COVID-19, of Black Lives Matter, of political unrest and democratic determination. We had to say goodbye to Ruth Bader Ginsburg and hello to a new normal of keeping our distance from our friends and family.
Regardless of political leanings, the importance of voting became a nationwide rally cry for action amidst a pandemic. The people wanted change, and we knew that we all had to step up if we wanted to enact it. As well as voting early, Ink&Pixel Agency created a series of animations as calls to action for eligible voters, and as tributes to those we lost throughout the year.
Even as an agency founded and run by women, Ink&Pixel is more privileged than many people in our country. With that privilege comes a responsibility—to support and fight for those who would more readily be silenced. Our design is our voice. It’s a way to speak up; to be both seen and heard so we can spread our message to a larger audience. The fight for equality cannot be won if we’re all sitting back, waiting for someone else to do the hard work. We have to make it happen ourselves.
We must now stand stronger than ever to make the changes we all deserve to see. We at Ink&Pixel promise to resist mediocrity. We the people demand revolution.
