Concept & Research

Disecting inclusivity, and the concepts that fall in line with that took careful consideration, ideation, and experimentation. Successfully communicating ideas like Intersectionality and Under-representation to a younger audience proved to be difficult but very rewarding.

U is for Under-representation

For this spread my goal was to communicate that even if you are not represented properly, it doesn’t mean you aren’t full of potential. And on the flip-side, that those who are represented well have a responsibility to give others space and a voice to recognize their potential for greatness.

I is for Intersectionality

To represent Intersectionality in this spread, I used tangled yarn to weave together and form the letter I. to represent how each of our identities are formed by the many different aspects of ourselves and how those different things mix together to create who we are.

Y is for You

For this spread my goal was to get the students reading the book to take a minute and reflect on how they conduct themselves and evaluate whether or not they are living inclusively, and to present some idea of how they might go about doing so.

Something that was reinforced during this project is the importance for allowing time to carefully evaluate decisions and not be afraid to pivot ideas if needed. Having a team of nine definitely helped ideation and iteration go by much quicker, and I believe that with a larger group, working cohesively together, the end product reflects the amount of dedication that each member of the team puts forth.
