Design for Justice

As a designer and educator, I have been thinking about how design could take a larger role in supporting social justice. Visual Communication design is not just a form of aesthetic power, but also a form of cultural power. 

Most of my students are freshmen and they are quite new in the digital design world. We ask the question: With today’s technology, how can we create an effective design in a more digital space? I designed this project for my students to creatively use typographic poster design and animation to speak out for what they believe.
