About this Event

Become a Graphic Ally! Learn how to tell visual data stories to inspire policy change and mobilize information at the grassroots level. In this free hands-on workshop, we will explore and apply principles of conscious and responsible design to a real-world infographic project.

WORKSHOP LEADER International speaker, Adobe Creative Residency alumna, and award-winning infographic designer, Jessica Bellamy, graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Louisville (UofL) with degrees in Drawing (BFA), Graphic Design (BFA), Pan African Studies (BA), and a minor in Communication. As a former Neurodevelopmental Science research analyst at UofL and community organizer, in 2015, Jessica created a social enterprise that combines grassroots organizing, research, and information graphics. She named this business GRIDS: The Grassroots Information Design Studio. She has been featured in Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global, Forbes, Communication Arts Magazine, The Great Discontent, Create Magazine, Creative Mornings, Slack, The Dieline, Revision Path, and on Adobe’s Project 1324 (viewable through Facebook).

Topics covered are as follows: icon drafting, infographic composition, power dynamics in design, data framing, asset vs. deficit mapping, access to information, and grassroots design strategies.

Learn how to map out infographic solutions for reaching and activating policy makers, people with resources, low-opportunity communities, and more.

Participants will leave with an actionable list of design strategies, and with experience creating an infographic.
