Hey AIGA community! My name is Joi Mann, I am a senior graphic design major, and super excited about graduating!! I am so glad I was able to share my work with you all. I have been designing and taking photos for about 6 years now. As an artist my goal is to allow my culture to drive my creativity and continue to pursue my creative journey. From apparel design, packaging to creative direction, I have explored many aspects, check out my instagram for more work!!
What agency or designer inspires you?
What is your ideal job at the end of school?
Graphic Design/Junior Art Director.
How do you deal with creative blocks?
I get out! Weather out the house or office, I like to just take a walk and see the world in a different way. If I am feeling like doing more, I will go to a museum or heavy foot traffic area to be reinspired by the world around me.
If you could interview any creative, who would it be?
JadePurpleBrown because she has a way of using her own style to communicate and create impactful designs. She is also a freelance black women designer and illustrator who has a feminine touch to her work and has been able to be successful and would be amazing to speak to someone in that lane!
How do you want people to remember your work?
I want people to remember my work by it’s richness in culture. Many people may not be able to see it, but my art wasn’t created for everyone, so I am okay with that. I want my art to feel like home to people, sometimes it bold and bright whereas sometimes it’s simple and muted. I want people to feel like I tapped into their emotions and truly heard them.
