We Design: People. Practice. Progress. is a publication that celebrates the creative process with an exploration of the intersectional identities of designers belonging to historically marginalized communities. The book also features dialogue on how identity relates to design and inspires young designers to create with authenticity.

At Design Museum Everywhere, we believe design can change the world. And those who affix the title “designer” in their professional or personal lives are subsequently the builders, fixers, and problem solvers of our world. But “designer” is too simple a title to encapsulate the history, experiences, and full identities of the humans behind design.

Through case studies, featured profiles, interviews, and personal essays, this upcoming publication inspired by our nationally-touring We Design exhibition asks 41 individuals working across a range of design fields to share who they are, how they built their creative career, and how their identities shape their design process. This book explores personal identity through a deep dive into the worlds of women, gender-expansive, Black, Indigenous, and people of color working in design.

We Design: People. Practice. Progress. features both student and professional essays. With an eye toward the future of design, the publication highlights five student essays at the beginning of each chapter. Each essay brings into focus issues young designers are facing today and how these issues intersect with their own identities.
