First Friday-Made in Chinatown: Designing for Our Own Communities
For the past year, AAPI designers have seen an exponential growth in demand for their creative work. There is finally interest in their lived experience, shared memories, and culture in contemporary design. While AAPI designers are asked to design for the masses, what does it mean to design for their own communities? This panel features three designers from the Made in Chinatown program who will talk about their experiences working with Chinatown businesses. They will also reflect on what it means to create work for their community. This panel is moderated by Faidat Fahm, Product Designer and will feature Harry Trinh, Head of Creative at Welcome to Chinatown, Eden Lew, Interdisciplinary Designer, and Kasey Coffey, Designer, Illustrator, and Tom Yum Enthusiast.
