Too Much Information. Or is it?
Through my work promoting equity in education, I have come to several conclusions. 1) Personal journey work, where we each seek to understand what has influenced us and how we show up in the world, will be essential to healing American community and culture weighed down by a history of systemic oppression 2) More of these personal journeys need to be shared - only through storytelling will we be able to empathize with one another and have the strength and drive to make real change happen and 3) There are far too few spaces for real dialogue on incredibly difficult topics, but that dialogue needs to happen. This book is my response to these conclusions. It is a memoir of my life, complete with story, drama, arc, and "happy ending." It is loosely organized by the influences on my life. But it is more than a memoir; it is a political and social commentary. I use my life story to contextualize and ground analysis of American society at large, tackling issues such as the class divide, racism, and feminism on multiple dimensions. I want homeless teenagers who struggled as I did to know that they can make it. I want the story of the white urban poor to be told. I want to challenge the common wisdom of feminism. Broadly, I want other people to see themselves in my story and ultimately recognize that in the end, the forces that bring us together are far more powerful than those that drive us apart.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
jmarcel collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.

And then… they selected a winner!
Donna was able to take the concept for my book (a toilet on the front) and design a cover that was elegant, as promised. I loved the design and couldn't ask for better. Moreover, out of all the designers I've ever worked with, she had the best response time, often answering me late at night. She truly is a master of her craft.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
