    Question (it) still is

    1. Graphical design has been a topic of many studies, and still is.

    2. Graphical design has been a topic of many studies, and it still is.

    Which is better (with or without "it")? I think that the second clause adds some emphasis to the sentence, suggesting that the graphical design is not a topic that does not call for further research. Am I right?

    Thanks,
    Nyggus

    I see the "it" as merely adding weight to the statement that it is still a subject for research.

    nb: "Graphic design"

    Graphic design has been the subject of many studies and still is.
