Daniel Brown is a multi-disciplinary designer and visual artist who produces explorations of Black queer experience. His research and printed works explore language and coded signals while studying power, race, consumerism, and sexuality.
A design educator, he encourages critical discussions about identity and contemporary American culture. Through his practice, he innovates learning communities, using design and publishing to showcase diverse perspectives and, in the process, build empathy and open public dialogues. With aspirations of establishing a publishing house and reasserting the responsibility of the classroom in society, he imagines new ways of making sense of the world through reading.
