Type Talks 24/03 Review
I am always appreciative of industry talkers who come in to BCU; the university have took a conscious effort to bring in talkers to explain the process of their careers, to help student get a better understanding of what the future may entail. Anderson’s story was a most inspiring one at that. The designer has had a long and prosperous career within the industry, having been in contact with huge names such as Paula Scherr! Though the stunning work presented was very awe inspiring, what I (and I can presume many of the listeners) appreciated most about the talk was her transparency about being a person of colour working in design. She described biases faced, pre judgements and a blatant under-representation. Such an important topic! Though these must be hard topics to disclose, change happens once the problem is heard. So talks like this are vital to educate people on injustices.
