A Celebration of Black History Month, Part 1: W.E.B. DuBois

This February, we have been shining a light on a group of influential Black designers from the past and present and exploring how their work has informed and continues to inspire the greater design community.

We first highlighted the groundbreaking data visualization work of W.E.B. DuBois and his team in the early 20th century. This iconic work continues to influence modern design – even inspiring a typeface named DuBois, which can be purchased from vocaltype.co
