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. 

Celebrating Rachel Cargle

This portrait hits close to home for illustrator Kath Nash, who says that writer and lecturer Rachel Cargle has “an incredible voice that has educated and challenge me time and time again.”

Built by black Dropboxers

In 2018, Dropbox celebrated Black History Month with a collection of posters that highlight black Dropboxers and their stories around what they’ve built at Dropbox. Posters by Garrett Prince and portraits by Chris Behroozian.

Like air, I’ll rise

Designer Jenn illustrates the powerful refrain from one of Maya Angelou’s most famous poems, “Still I Rise.”

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.

Leading the way in space

Pat Raubo honors Mae Jemison, an engineer, physician, and astronaut. She became the first African American woman to travel in space in 1992.
