Mastering Your Skills is an online workshop series for women in Graphics, Motion, UI/UX, and Illustration. A focus on portfolio development will be held this month, exclusively for 15 women of colour who need to gain a sense of direction on how to position themselves in the industry.
I am a multidisciplinary design educator and cultural policy researcher with experience in design education and community work. My research thesis explores the experiences and aspirations of Black graphic designers in the Creative Arts Industry, which is a crucial step towards fostering a more inclusive and diverse industry. The outcomes of this research will significantly impact how the industry perceives and understands the unique challenges and strengths of Black creatives in Britain.
