If you’re not inspired after hearing Jonathan Key talk about design, you might need to check your pulse! Jonathan’s design work is all about representation, whether it’s through his creative collective Codify Art or by taking a stand against state-sponsored violence by the police via Artists Against Police Violence. And he’s still doing more!
We started our conversation by discussing why it’s important for artists and designers to be involved with social issues, and from there talked about his time at Brown University and RISD and how those experiences shaped his current work. He also mentioned the design work he’s doing in the black LGBT community and talked about the artists and designers who influence his work. Overall, it’s a great interview with someone who takes design and its power in our society very seriously. I hope you get inspired!
