Blind Spots

  • Hedzlynn Kamaruzzaman

The design discourse is dominated by Europeans and North Americans, and often considering the ‘othered’ box a craft. Blind Spots is a publication, aimed at students and practicing graphic designers of ages 18-25. It highlights underrepresented creatives, particularly BIPOCs, in the graphic design industry.​​​​​​​ The title, derived from the book Protest: The Aesthetics of Resistance, means something that is there but is often overlooked or ignored. This idea and concept is explored and visualized in various ways and applied in headings, pull quotes and layouts. The spreads and typography show the idea of continuity and elements being forgotten and lost.
