Curating Color began as an exploration into the lack of diversity in the graphic design field. This book and timeline display was created to provide the needed representation for significant black graphic designers who paved the way for people like me. According to the 2016 Design Census, 73% of professional designers are caucasian and only 3% are Black. This statistic provided the necessary spark to create a project that could aid the devastatingly low percentage of black designers in the field. A major contributing factor to the low percentage is a lack of role models. Finding information on black graphic designers is not as easy as it seems; these designers and their accomplishments are often overlooked due to their lives and work not being as well documented as caucasian design leaders in this industry. Even throughout my college-level design education, there was still a lack of knowledge about black graphic designers and their contributions to the history of graphic design. Curating Color was designed to be unignored with the hopes of the viewer walking away with more information about Black people’s role in design history than they came in with.
