The Native Graphic Design Project is intended as a way to increase the visibility of Native American/First Nations/American Indian/AmerIndian/Aboriginal/Metís/Native Alaskan/Indigenous/Indígina/Inuit people working in the field of graphic design. Basically, I am covering the Indigenous people of North America, as well as middle and South America, as cultural barriers allow. Indigenous-identified Latino people are more than welcome to submit their names. The website is run by Neebinnaukzhik Southall (that’s me!). I am a graphic designer and a member of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation. Rarely does one hear about Natives in graphic design, and I think that needs to change. The purpose of this project is to inform, encourage, and inspire.
Over time I have compiled a list of known Native graphic designers (click Designer List at the top!). If you have a suggestion to add to the list, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
And, if you are a Native designer that would like to be featured on the blog, get in touch!
If you’re a Native designer on Facebook, check out the closed group Indigenous Graphic Designers to connect with others: https://www.facebook.com/groups/IndigenousGraphicDesigners/
