Indigenous Graphic Designer. Native Textile Designer.
Real. Craftmanship. Design.
There is a rich history of beautifully illustrated magazine covers showcased in the UCDA Design Awards. So, it was no surprise when I came upon the stunning entry submitted by Fort Lewis College. I was struck by the color, craftsmanship and design and found myself wanting to know more about the creation of this piece.
