We already accomplished a few things in 14 years.

As a collective, we've been mentoring and connecting AA/Blk Designers for over a decade. 

We have a free Facebook group of 3,000+ members and here, we're building a foundation to close the gap between side-hustle and profession.

As a collective, we've worked on over 100 projects and put together presentations and proposals for nationally recognized social justice Initiatives, educational institutions, and AA/Blk Organizations.

Who we strive to reach.

AA/Blk Visual Communicators. Creatives who make media.
Our commitment is to maintain a safe space to celebrate our creative community and to make connections, projects, and movements that awaken our world.
