The Art and Design Department welcomes international speaker, Adobe Creative Residency alumna, and award-winning designer, Jessica Bellamy, to the University of Southern Indiana campus on February 5, 2019.
The event will have two distinct parts. In part one, Bellamy will meet with classes of design students to share her experiences and professional knowledge.
In part two, Bellamy will give a lecture about her experiences as a creative operating at the intersection of community organizing, information design, research and experience design. She shares, “In this session, I will walk you through impact design case studies, my six principles of Conscious and Responsible design, give a foundation in data equity, and share with you the tools necessary to be successful in the social change sector.” This free lecture will be held at 6 p.m. in Kleymeyer Hall in the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center. It is open to students, faculty, staff and the public.
Bellamy has Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degrees in Drawing and Graphic Design, a bachelor’s degree in Pan African studies and a minor in communication all from the University of Louisville. As a former neuro developmental science research analyst and community organizer, in 2015, Bellamy created a social enterprise that combines grassroots organizing, research and information graphics. She named this business GRIDS: The Grassroots Information Design Studio. She has been featured in Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global, Forbes, Communication Arts Magazine, The Great Discontent, Create Magazine, Creative Mornings, Slack, The Dieline, Revision Path, and on Adobe’s Project 1324.
