+ BOOK AND WEB DESIGN + GRAPPLING WITH MEMORY, HISTORY, AND UPLIFTING MARGINALIZED VOICES


As part of Polymode's team, we designed a report for The Los Angeles Mayor's Office Civic Memory Working Group in collaboration with Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West, with assistance from the J. Paul Getty Trust. The design of the book report tries to capture the grappling of L.A.'s past and uplifting histories and narratives, especially narratives of the past that are heavily buried, whitewashed, and erased.

The responsive website was designed in collaboration with Happening Studio, adapting some of the design elements that were created for the book report. The website features interactive footnotes and an interactive map that was designed by Scott Reinhard and can also be found in the book report.
