RESPECT HER CRANK! DESIGNING SOUNDS OF BLACKNESS: Poster Child

RESPECT HER CRANK! DESIGNING SOUNDS OF BLACKNESS: Poster Child 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.

Some of your favorite musicians slowly gained recognition in their neighborhoods, cities, and towns, by performing and promoting their music locally. They used flyers and posters to capture the attention of potential fans. In this workshop, learn how to design promotional graphics that captivate musical audiences.

Please e-mail hirshhornexperience@si.edu if you would like to request ASL interpretation for this program.
