Utile AAPI Month Logo
Logo redesign for Utile Architecture for AAPI History Month.
My piece calls for safe, art-filled spaces for AAPI Bostonians. As this piece references moments I’ve seen from working with a particular AAPI community - Boston Chinatown - I also wanted to celebrate all the amazing, diverse AAPI creatives and cultural organizers who work tirelessly to create an inclusive Greater Boston for everyone. Muralists, performers, teachers, builders, healers, gardeners, culinary artists, organizers, and more help to make public and private spaces magical and full of life. I especially felt compelled to illustrate this scene because of the ongoing violence against AAPI people around the country. As community-led art helps these spaces feel joyful, artists also have the insights and critical thinking skills to call for policy changes that help cities become truly inclusive and safe.
