Designing Equal By Design
Equal By Design is a thesis project that addresses the lack of African American graphic designers. The project is designed to spark curiosity, give future graphic designers some reassurance, and show that African Americans are in the graphic design field and have made big contributions to the industry. The campaign consist of a book, website, and poster series. I want to use this time to tell my story, show how Equal By Design came to be, and where I want to take it.
