Vice News hosted the 2020 Brown & Black Democratic Presidential Forum in Iowa on MLK day, where Democratic candidates, Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, John Delaney, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Andrew Yang, were invited to discuss their positions on issues affecting communities of colour.
I joined the Vice News graphics team to design and animate the stage visuals for the important forum. In 2021, we were awarded a News & Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Graphic Design and Art Direction for the project.
