RESPECT HER CRANK! DESIGNING SOUNDS OF BLACKNESS: Brand New Sound

RESPECT HER CRANK! DESIGNING SOUNDS OF BLACKNESS: Brand New Sound Online

Register here! No prior experience is needed.
Tailored for educators, open to all.

Black women have strategically used graphic design to enhance their sound. Just think about your favorite album cover, whether it be The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill  or Megan Thee Stallion’s Fever. In Respect Her Crank! Designing Sounds of Blackness, prominent graphic designer Candice Taylor draws the relationship between graphic design and music throughout multiple workshops designed to teach the fundamental principles of design.

The biggest musicians have recognizable brands. A logo is one of the most important elements of a musician’s brand. In this workshop, learn how a logo can be designed to elevate and differentiate a musicians identity.
