I provide movement-building graphic and website design for social justice organizations. My work explores how digital storytelling connects people with campaigns for transformative justice, self-determination, and sustainability.
Designs no longer need to be static representations of an identity because the technologies that fuel them can blend education, engagement, and action.
As organizations, artists, educators, activists, journalists and scholars, we constantly share our stories and skills. How people encounter our work, and how it is visually communicated, is often just as important as the work itself.
Still, communicating what we have to share is often thought of as mass-mailing a bulleted list. But communication is strategic when it emphasizes our values as well as our facts.
My approach to designing websites, identities, posters, and publications is to tell a story that engages shared values. Through both narrative and design, you can frame campaigns, inspire action, and create emotional connections between your audience and your daily work.
“Our strategy should not be only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories.”
