Welcome to African American Graphic Designers

Glad to have you here in our carefully curated group of AA/Blk Designers.

Our reason for being.

All art is propaganda and ever must be, despite the wailing of the purists. I stand in utter shamelessness and say that whatever art I have for writing has been used always for propaganda for gaining the right of black folk to love and enjoy. I do not care a damn for any art that is not used for propaganda.

— W.E.B. DuBois

Building Blk Identity through Community.

We are not a community dedicated to teaching you how to make more money.

  • Our concentration is beyond Capital. 
  • Our connections are more profound than surface-level.
  • Our shared goal is to support each other and provide a place for you to experience the power of community.

No one builds community better than US.

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

As a connected organism, 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.

Community Curation + Blk Worth.

This community isn't for everyone.

We are carefully curating our community. We are looking for Black creatives who are dedicated to: 

  • Showing up
  • Helping each other grow
  • Changing the visual identity of our culture

What's in it for you?

  • Being seen, respected, and heard.
  • Experiencing creative collaboration through innovative interaction that encourages belonging, creativity, and efficiency in every aspect of your life.
  • Finally, finding a place for you to belong.

We use design as a lens to life and a tool for solving problems for each other, our clients, and the world. Being a member here requires a commitment. If you need to only hang out as an observer, we can guide you to several other outlets.


Of course, you're wondering what you're missing and how being a part of our community feels. This clip below best sums it up.
