Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay – A Redesign
Hand Bound Publication
Roxane Gay’s Bad Feminist is an incredibly important and culturally significant text. In today’s climate, we so often blindly follow the media and idolize celebrities without considering what it is we are truly supporting. The text critiques modern feminism, and its exclusion of black and brown women.
For a Publication Design course taken at the University of San Francisco, we were tasked with redesigning a text of our choosing. We were to create all images and provide our own annotations to the texts we elect for our projects.
In my redesign of this book, I place an emphasis on the representation and celebration of these forgotten perspectives. My design relied on crafting together images, quotes, and existing research to provide the reader with insight into the beauty of these womxn. With so much information being curated, structure and hierarchy were integral to my process.
