The Brightmoor Makers is an organization run out of Detroit Community High School that teaches kids making and design skills. My class was tasked with designing their visual identity.
After working on this project, my designs were selected to be implemented by the Brightmoor Makers.
Kids work together to develop skills that are not fostered in a typical school classroom. Being involved in the Makers can help kids who don’t feel that a standard high school education correlates with their talents and interests find direction and gain skills relevant to work in creative fields after graduation. The Brightmoor Makers is currently comprised of kids from Detroit Community High School, but hopes to expand to the greater community of Detroit, America, and the world. The Brightmoor Makers gives people the ability to make their own jobs and be in control of their work and income. Ultimately, what is most important to the Brightmoor makers is their ability to allow people to make positive changes in their lives.
