White Space: Revealing Racist Stereotypes in
Graphic Design
 

MFA Thesis
Spring 2019

Project Description    

White Space is a graduate thesis that focuses on educating White graphic designers on how to avoid racial stereotypes in graphic design. The project uses juxtaposition as a visual tool to shock the viewer into understanding the context of a visual stereotype used in graphic design. In order to complete the collection, I used a website with informational tools and tests for the purpose of continuing data collection, a book that showcases the research which updates yearly, and an exhibition that displayed fifteen juxtapositions of past stereotypes in design with contemporary designs.
