Abstract: Too Much White Space: Diversity In Graphic Design, is a community-based project that focuses on inspiring future black generations to become graphic designers. This project aims to respond to the AIGA article called Where are the Black designers?, by Maurice Cherry. In his article, he asks tough questions about the lack of racial diversity in design. He explains why the lack of diversity is a problem and how it hurts the design field. Researching this topic in-depth will help me find ways to get more minorities involved in graphic design. One day in my design career, I would like to expand this project and see if I can make an impact to raise the percentage of minorities in design.
