14 Feb Conversations on Diversity in Design
February being #BlackHistoryMonth, we think it’s a good time to talk about #diversity in the world of graphic arts. Conversations surrounding racial diversity in the graphic arts community are not new.
We invited five African American designers to weigh in on the importance of diversity in design by answering the following three questions:
- Conversations surrounding racial diversity in the graphic arts community are not new. What is the overall benefit of diversifying the graphic art / design industry?
- Black graphic artists / designers are often the only one of their kind in any one room at a time. What can we do to change the makeup of the graphic art / design community so it looks more like the world we live in?
- Name a black graphic artist / designer other than yourself, living or deceased, that made an impact on your aesthetic or work style. How does that impact present itself in your work?
