The essential DEI career guide for every design student

Posted: April 15, 2021

Written collaboratively by a diverse team of designers, Extra Bold: A Feminist, Inclusive, Anti-Racist, Nonbinary Field Guide for Graphic Design (Princeton Architectural Press, May 11, 2021) aims to add new voices to the conversation around DEI and design and reshape how we view and think about our world.

Featuring interviews, essays, typefaces, and projects from dozens of contributors across a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds, abilities, gender identities, and positions of economic and social privilege, Extra Bold is filled with stories and ideas that don’t show up in other career books or design overviews.

The book opens with essays that bring fresh ideas to feminism, racism, inclusion, and nonbinary thinking. Later, it explores power structures and how to navigate them. Interviews showcase people at different stages of their careers, and biographical sketches explore individuals whose stories haven’t been told due to sexism, racism, and ableism. Extra Bold explores a wide array of topics, including “mansplaining,” disability theory, binary thinking, wage gaps, mentoring, activism, and much more. Extra Bold is the career manual every design student needs.

As the authors explain in the introduction, “People begin their careers with different life histories. Those experiences affect what we know, how we work, and what gifts—and biases—we bring to our work…Each individual can leverage their own power to amplify other voices and disrupt patterns of inequity.”
