Client: Voice Media Ventures
Partners: Black Voice News

Role: Creative Direction, lead design, illustration, exhibition & campaign design

Black Voice News (BVN) is a media group operated by Voice Media Ventures that does solutions-oriented, data-supported, justice seeking reporting from Southern California’s Inland Empire. In 2023 BVN celebrated 50 years on their commitment to the community. I was brought on to help with creative direction, logo design, campaign strategy and spearhead the design for their event celebrations culminating to their Power of the Press exhibit at San Bernadino County Museum.

“Commemorating 50 years of service as a source for community news and information in the Inland Empire, Power of the Press: Black Voice News @ 50, documents the transformation of the Black Voice News from a printed community weekly newspaper to a digital solutions focused, data reporting news organization.”
