Last year, Tina Shoulders of Laidback Home kicked off a series of blog posts spotlighting designers of color. And even though she started mid-February, that didn’t stop her from writing a full 28 days of awesome posts. If you missed it, don’t worry, she compiled her work. 28 Days of Diversity in Design is available in e-book form.
Like Tina shows, so many African-American designers are doing amazing work. (Last year, we interviewed Jack Poles, Will Smith, Kim Myles and Sheila Bridges.) But people of color are still underrepresented in the fields of architecture, interior design and decor. It’s crucial to call out the trailblazers, movers and shakers and up-and-comers. So, I call on you, our Design Happens fans, to expand my ever-growing list of favorites.
