AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDIES

TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY PRESS

An innovative exploration of Black nationalist Marcus Garvey's influence upon the diverse communities of the American West.

Given such a striking image, most of my contribution here was font choice and placement. Something wide and slab serif felt just western enough to fit right in. The slight text interaction implies, if only subtly, that while Garvey may be currently sitting, he soon will rise. 

For this title I have so far designed the cover, a postcard, and web banners.
