Digital Designs + New Web Project @TokenTalkShow

Since May 10, 2016 a couple months ago, I’ve embarked on a new project called Token Talk with host Dariane Nabor and co-producer Cat Manabat. Presented by Racebending (most famous for their anti-whitewashing Hollywood campaign against the live film adaptation of The Last Airbender), Token Talk is “a weekly live talk show promoting works by, for, and about underrepresented communities.”

Token Talk is a way to continue those conversations about underrepresented communities in pop culture. The show itself is broadcasted from Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, CA and produced by XSN, an online shopping network that dubs itself as “QVC 2.0.”

At its core, we want this to be a show that promotes work or products by, for, or about underrepresented groups. We want to do more than boycott whitewashed works. Show the industries you want to see more representation by voting with your dollar and supporting diverse works. We hope to encourage viewers to use their consumer power to support work done by diverse communities and show representation isn’t just about having a “token” [insert marginalized descriptor here] person. We hope to entertain viewers but also enrich, inform, and get them to discover and buy cool, diverse stuff, too!

We passed out these business cards during San Diego Comic-Con weekend to indie vendors. I designed the back.
