What if there were a school teaching design decentered from the hegemonic design gaze + centered unheard voices/ideas/cultures?

For the #AdobeHiddenTreasures #Contest, I created a webpage for the School of Post-Colonial Design Thought. adobe.ly/2LaKnl3 #AdobePartner /1
Before I go any further, let’s talk about what I mean when I say the “hegemonic design gaze” (HDG for the rest of this thread). The HDG dictates what “good”/“bad” design is—often from an aesthetic point of view, w/ little regard for utility, origin, or environment. /2
Many of the formative ideas of the HDG stem from very Eurocentric ideas of design.

Have you ever noticed that when you open a design textbook, all of the design “greats”, historical or modern, come from Western + white cultures? /3
