Overview
Black Designers Matter is a lecture series combined workshop with the objective of uplifting designers of black/Afro decent. It was established to create a space for black designers in different mediums to get together and show off work as well as talk to newer designers on what it's like being black in this field.
Objective
The main goal was to brand out the conference and any assets that would go with the event for both participants and volunteers. The brief specified that the mark and main visual elements had to be typographic in nature while also conveying an action or movement.
Approach
Each poster is made to highlight a specific designer and advertise their lecture/workshop to fit their medium. The type was chosen for its more geometric look and the rather large cap height. To emphasize the visual movement from the event, certain words were altered to mimic digital sound waves and keep the action of shouting and protesting.
