Designing Voice Workbook

  • Designing Voice consists of a series of tools created to assist teachers in introducing the theme of immigration and diversity into their classrooms. A team of Pratt Institute Graduate students (Design Advocacy class) lead by Professor Gala Narezo collaborated with fellowship teachers from NYU-Center of Latin American and Caribbean Studies. 
    I focused on language as a way to explore this theme. The workbook allows identity exploration and reflection through the usage of multiple languages (English + Spanish, or English used at home + English used at school, or English + drawing). The workbook contains mini assignments, some of which are based on a short documentary (The Fifth Section by filmmaker Alex Rivera) and on a wordless picture-book (The Arrival by illustrator Shaun Tan).
    Team member Jon Dicus is the designer of the brand identity for this project.
