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.

Have you ever pressed play on an album because the cover art caught your attention? Cover art illustrates the stories told throughout the entire album. By studying popular album cover art, learn to visually narrate sonic stories.
