- It would be boring

- Everything would be Swedish minimalism

- No diversity = no new ideas

- White designers appropriating minority culture for "aesthetics"

WHAT IS DESIGN WITHOUT

COLOR?

A design and tech conference for people of color

WHAT IS DESIGN WITHOUT COLOR is a design conference dedicated to providing resources and talks specifically for designers of color, from negociating pay to the commonly forgotten contributions black and brown people have made to the design industry.

Yes, you can succeed and not be a white guy.
( Sorry any white guys reading this.)

THE STATISTICS
WHY IS THIS THE CASE?

ART SCHOOL IS $$$$

Design education is only accesible to the financially priviledged.

LACK OF VISIBILITY

Lack of visibility of designers of color in media gives aspiring designers of color nobody to look up to.

OLD BOYS NETWORK

Less networks available for designers of color, many of whom are the first designers in their families.

WHY SHOULD I CARE?

IF YOU'RE NOT AN ASS

Pretty self explanatory

BETTER DESIGN

Different experience creates new ideas creates better solutions

BETTER FOR BUSINESS

Different experience creates new ideas creates better solutions
