Black History Month is an invitation to celebrate Black culture—art, literature, music, food, and, of course, design. We went to Dribbble to pick out five inspiring designs highlighting the Black community.

Three of the greats
Visual designer ibbie wanted to find enamel pins of these three authors—Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, and Zora Neale Hurston—who have written some of his favorite books. He couldn’t find any, so, he decided to create them himself and hopes to turn this illustration into actual pins someday.
