The Global Majority
Precedents are a valuable part of any design field, and they are an essential tool for building knowledge and gaining new perspectives on design. However, precedents used in design schools typically lack diversity and focus primarily on white designers. This imbalance discourages people of color from feeling welcome in design as they lack access to successful role models and representation. Anecdotal evidence shows improved retention and academic success for students of color who have more diverse curricula. With access to the work of these designers, students can better understand the richness and complexity of the world around them. Our goal is to create a database of precedents by diverse and underrepresented designers to support design students and faculty in their courses.
