“We are on a constant development path, for both our product Piktochart and our understanding of customers’ needs. We found ourselves requiring more data to make better decisions in developing our product as an information design solution. The focus was on analyzing the current state of graphic design for businesses, particularly the B2B space. We wanted to gather more insight into their design workflow and specific needs. We couldn’t find any new statistics on graphic design for B2B, so we decided to conduct our own survey in December last year,” said Agata Krzysztofik, VP of Growth at Piktochart.
