Designer: Maurice Woods

Part of an exhibition of eight designers titled “WORD: My definition is this...” The primary goal of the exhibit and poster was to use our discipline as a tool for expressing our individual assessment of words primarily used to describe or reflect African-American culture.

“Design Journeys” is a collection of stories about the professional lives, contributions, and portfolios of designers—contemporary and historical—from traditionally under-represented groups or backgrounds.

The archive serves as an accessible body of research honoring their accomplishments and inspiring today's emerging designers. Individuals selected for “Design Journeys” are published with visual samples of their work and an insightful, biographical essay.
