Isidor Studio was hired to create a dynamic design for the book to elevate content's importance and engagement within the department and beyond. The book presents a series of color-coded sections, each with weaving line elements that grow as readers move through the content. A high-contrast palette and a balance of serif and sans serif typography communicate a serious tone while maintaining a modern action-oriented feel.
The teach-in aimed to center racial justice in urban design and planning; to imagine what is required to build inclusive, thriving, and just cities. The Black DUSP Thesis inspired this initiative. Teach-In participants’ group work demonstrated that the necessary and urgent work of racial justice can be concretely integrated into research and practice.
