Duluth Disparities

Duluth Disparities

Using Design to Solve Real-World Problems

This was a project assigned during my ART 3922 Graphic Design II class. Students were challenged to answer the question: “How can design solve STEEP (social, technological, economic, environmental, and political) disparities for marginalized populations in Duluth communities?” This allowed students to recognize community disparities within Duluth and use design to help solve problems for the people.
