Black Is Beautiful Ceramic Diner Mug
Created in collaboration with Bricks & Wood for the Academy Museum's exhibit Regeneration: Black Cinema 1898 -1971.
The “Black is Beautiful” is such a simple and strong message, we wanted to amplify it across products. The words will live large and bold carrying the sense of pride and appreciation.

Bricks & Wood is a South Central, Los Angeles based apparel company that is focused on story telling through manufacture, design, & collaborations.
“A South-Central brand" means a community brand & there are communities all over the world that share a similar goal to growth. Supporting us is bigger than supporting another brand based around apparel. We plan to use our platform to not only change the narrative of fashion but to also give smaller communities like South Central a larger platform that showcases high standard creativity from places less fortunate.
We are more than a brand; we are a platform for the voices unheard.
