Taste: My Low-key Manifesto About Race and Class in the Design World

Musing on design, other things, and how bad design is good sometimes. In this manifesto, Justine Allenette Ross documents her influences and perspective as a female Black Illustrator in Detroit. Commenting on race, class, and being a designer in a system where good design is often synonymous with “European” or “white” aesthetics. Justine talks through the things that make her herself, and how all of those things are intersectional. You can’t separate who you are from how you make.
